IDE 1: Hard Drive = Main
CD Rom = Secondary

IDE 2: CDR or DVD = Main
Hard Drive = Secondary

Also check the UDMA specs of the drives.
If one of them is Ultra ATA/100 and another drive on the same channel is Ultra ATA/33, both drives will use Ultra ATA/33 ... so there will be a slight performance degradation in the UATA/100 drive.

catch23 is correct. Putting a cd-rom device on the same channel as your hard drive will definitely slow down your system.
