If you want to fit SATA drives to a machine which doesn't have on-board SATA, use a "SATA PCI Controller Card". They're pretty cheap and plug into a PCI expansion slot.
(I'd hope you don't want to connect an ATA / EIDE drive to a SATA controller.)

You can buy a converter.  That's about the only way.  They are not expensive. The one I bought cost about $20 at Frys.com.  I'm sure that other vendors have them.  Look for "ide to sata adapter".
