This would be the better and recommended way:
IDE0 -- Primary Hard drive A
IDE0 -- Secondary Hard drive B
IDE1 -- Primary DVD-ROM
IDE1 -- Seconary CD-ROM
Please note the following:
1) Always use the largest hard drive as Hard drive A
2) CD-Rom is extra! DVD-Rom can read CDs.
3) IDE0 is usually the faster of the two IDE ports. All hard drives are
recommended to be on this (IDE0) port.
> Install hard drives on IDE0 and both cdrom and dvd-rom on IDE1. Hard drive
