    I have a spare burner out of my second computer (that just pooped itself) and I am toying with putting it in my main computer (this one) rather than have it sitting around. This would have to go as slave to my ide hard drive.

    What i am wondering is do I change the jumpers ( maybe to cable select) on my 3 burners or do I just put my spare one in as a slave on the hard drive and leave the other two alone?

    other 2 alone. master on the ide, slave on the 3rd burner. your cables may nit be CS type.

    on older systems this coulkd slow the ide down. if you see that, ditch the third burner.

    yes, but if it slows the ide you should notice. no harm done.
