Acer TM 2400 hard drive??

Acer TM 2400 hard drive?? Laptop currently has 40gb hard drive, what I need to know is if its a SATA drive or IDE. I have looked up google and get various opinions. Can anyone confirm one way or the other? Thanks.

Thanks..yip it looks like its IDE, I got confused because people selling drives on ebay for the 2400 are showing SATA photos however the description says PATA.
