I have a question on configuring a RAID Level 0 setup for two identical hard drives with a DVD ROM and DVD RW on a Asus P4B533-E Motherboard. I am confused reading Asus' manual on how to jumper and install these drives. I want to be able to copy CD ROMs from the DVD ROM drive to the DVD-RW drive. My understanding based on reading their manual is this:
HDD #1 connects to the PRI_RAID connector jumpered as Master. HDD #2 connects to the SEC_RAID connector jumpered as Master DVD ROM connects to the PRI_IDE connector jumpered as Master DVD-RW connects to the SEC_IDE connector jumpered as Master
Is this the best setup? Thanks in advance.

That's how you set the Hard drives up I dont think the DVD/DVD RW really matter if they are master/slave on the same chennal but then again I dont know to much hehe.

Go with all on master as you've already suggested. This keeps every device 'happy'. TWO CD devices (one of them a CD/RW) may cause probs. Probably do no worse than reduce transfer speeds on copying drive to drive.
