Have a 400MHz Pent with a small ATA HD.
Machine is primarily used for word processing only
and saving word processing files.
Looking to add larger slave to current drive for file
saving.
Will EIDE hard drive work correctly with ATA drive
currently in the machine?
(Yes I am too lazy to reinstall,or copy on new drive.)

They're the same thing - both IDE. EIDE is fast ATA.

Yes, but don't be surprised when your shiney 160 GB only registers as 137
GB - your BIOS can't read that big.
