  1. It's best if your HDD is set as primary master. While your CDRW as secondary master and your CDROM as secondary slave. It's important to set the HDD and the CDRW in different IDE so that the bandwidth will not be shared when you are burning CD from your HDD.
  2. What about the second hard disk, should this be primary slave?
  3. Yeah, that should be OK.

  4. I would think it would be better to put the CD-ROM drive as the secondary master and the 2nd hard drive as the secondary slave. It'll speed up cd-copying since both the CD Drives aren't on the same channel.
