thinking about buying this card but it gives following blurb in the product description:

"An available hard disk drive power dongle (smaller floppy disk drive connector is not sufficient)."

does anyone out there have this card? If so what does this mean? Is it easy to install?

This is a power plug connection (molex)same size as the ones that go to the hard drive (yellow / black /black /red cables). The card requires power from the Power supply unit aswell as the AGP slot it will plug into.

There are normally 4 from the power supply unit.
You can also buy a splitter that will add extra ones

You will need a spare large 4-pin power connector to power this card, the same type as your hard drive uses. When you open your case you should find one is available.

This card uses up 2 slots, your AGP slot plus the PCI slot next to it.....make sure you have enough room for it.

Easy to install ? They are fairly straight forward to install, yes.

No, I don't have one.
