It appears that your mainboard was made by microstar at:

You need to know your mainboard maker (probably Microstar), Mainboard Model and sometimes Mainboard Version. If you need to figure out what you have, just follow the motherboard ID article at:

You didn't mention HDD capacity you want to support. It is UNLIKELY that you will find a BIOS update that will support HDDs larger than 32 GB, but TRY anyway if you need to. If you don't find a BIOS update just use an ATA/66 card (about $20 USD) - it will support HDDs up to about 128 GB and it will be plenty fast unless your IDE HDD has a sustained data transfer rate a lot more than 66 MB/sec (it doesn't).

Good Luck,
