Default Replacing CD-RW Drive With CD-RW/DVD-Rom Combo Drive

I am replacing a cd-rw drive in my dell, which only has room for one cdrom drive, and i need to replace mine, so i need to know how to do this. From physically installing the drive to getting it workable through BIOS so i can install the drivers off the cd through the drive itself since i only have room for one cd drive.

Okay kid, here's what ya gotta do

first, you'll need about five virgins, the minimum is three, but bring five for good mesure

then, ya gotta drive all the way to Reno, and here's the important part, it must be done in a 1983 volvo with a 5 speed.

when you get to Reno, pull over on exit 50

there's a sign there, follow the instructions

and when ya get back, the DVD drive should be ready to go!
