    You could plug a USB 2.0 hub such as this one into your USB port and not worry about master/slave.

    as long as you have a primary HDD connected via either to the p-ata channel or the s-ata channels you should be fine connecting the other devices to USB... not sure if it is a wise idea to connect 2 HDD's on a single USB cable though (due to transfer rates amongst other things)...

    personally have not heard that take place but what Unwonted suggested would be the best thing really... if you don't have more room available...

    else swap one of your current p-ata or s-ata drives for a larger capacity one...
