on 80conductor cable the slave is on the middle connector.

on 40conductor cables the master is on the middle connector.

Primary+Secondary and Master+Slave are physically the same. It doesn't matter where you put your drives or atapi devices. It also doesn't matter where you put your OS. ALL modern IDE controllers support devices of different speeds on the same channel without slowing anything down. To avoid problems its better to put HD and CD-ROM on a different channel/cable though.
