Hi,

I am building my first PC and want to reuse an Maxtor Diamond10 IDE HDD and a IDE DVD Rom from my old PC.

My question is with two devices the manual appears to imply that one should be set as master and the other as slave. Which one should be master?

I also will have two new Samsung SATA drives that will contain OS and main data. I will also have a new DVD-RW which is SATA also so I don't need to boot from the old kit.

Spec is:

Antec p150
Asus P5B deluxe wifi
C2D E6400
2GB Ram
2 x Samsung SATA (401lj & 501lj)
Gigabyte 7600gt
NEC 7170S SATA DVD RW
Maxtor 205GB IDE
LG DVD ROM IDE
