On a standard PC you can't. Maximum number of drives is 2 (master and slave). A typical PC will only allow you two drives per IDE. You'd have to implement some type of RAID setup to get more than two.

So an external hard drive is the next option.... ? Apart from RAID setup.

Probably the cheapest solution. Never tried it though, so no suggestions on the external thing.

the external hard drive will not be as fast and would be great for back up and playing videos, music and media such as that.. but running programs and games is not a good idea the usb is to slow for that.. you could always just get a biger slave drive

You can also add in a PCI IDE card to allow more hard drives, doesn't have to be a RAID config.

Here is a list of IDE adapter cards, some offer RAID capabilities as well.
