IDE is a type of Hard Drive that referrs to the BUS/Transfer technolgoy - Hard Drives can be IDE or SCSI.

RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independant (or Inexpensive) Disk

RAID is basically 2 or more disk configured in a way so that Windows see ony 1 disk when there are multiple underlying disc that are configured so that the data is spread across all the disc so that if one disc fails you can recover the data.

I should add:

I THINK "...that IDE refers to BUS/Transfer technolgoy"

Yes, your primary (hehe, don't take it too seriously ) problem lies here. My old computer was below your system specs but it ran/runs Maya pretty smoothly with a geforce2 gts display adapter. If you don't want to upgrade the whole thing, I'd start with the display adapter...
