master / slave setup
Most hardware manufacturers suggest to optimize compatibility and performance by:
connecting the hdd to the primary IDE connector (IDE1) and the CD-rom to the secondary IDE connector, also enable DMA mode.
SO, connect the hdd to the primary IDE as master, a CDRW to the secondary as master, the CD or DVD-rom as secondary, slave.
