Default Adding an IDE Hard Drive

I recently purchased a Dimension 4700 with a 160GB SATA HD and a DVD Drive.
The DVD Drive is at the end of the IDE cable with jumpers set to CS. I want to add a Western Digital WDC2500 IDE HD to the system. (NB: there is only one IDE slot in the system, so both the HD and DVD drive must be on this 1 cable, I think)

When both are placed in CS, with the DVD drive at the end of the cable and the HD at the middle, the HD is recognized but the DVD drive is not.

What is the best way to do this so that the jumpers and cables are set up properly, and the computer recognizes both drives?

Thanks in advance for your help!
