It certainly will... I'm running a SATA2 drive on my SATA1 board right now, you just won't get the full data rate that SATA 2 offers. Certain SATA2 drives have jumper settings to set them in SATA1 mode I believe (certain Western Digitals I've seen).

Yes, some drives need to be setup for SATA1 or SATA2.
