any suggestions as to what I can put in an old Yikes G4 that will work with the Ultra ATA-33 controller?

Anything below 128GB, and ATA drive will do. I installed a 30GB and a 80GB in my gf's Yikes (3 in total, counting the original 10GB drive), and works fine. The drives I installed are ATA100 IDE's. The drives will run at ATA-33 speeds.

Check the PowerMac Storage thread for a lot of usefull info, you'll find any answers there.
