Windows won't see any difference between your IDE and SCSI (Small Computer System Interface, but yea, usually pronounced scuzi ) drives, because the device drivers will hide any such differences. Unfortunately, I retired my last Win98 machine last year and don't remember any options for locking individual windows (they won't change any way as long as they're open, and once they're closed they no longer exist to be locked?).
Not much help, I know.
