    I just installed a new mobo and need help setting up the CD/HD...which should be the primary and secondary? I have my SCSI drive set up to boot, just cant figure out why the 40GB drive and both CD's arent showing up...

    put any hd's on the primary channel, and all cdroms on the secondary. it's not a good idea to mix hd's and cdrom's cuz it will slow down your hd.

    make sure they are set up as master/slave and the masters are on the end of the cable (black) and the slaves are in the middle (grey).
