Default HELP Setting Up IDE CD/DVD burners

Since I have SATA 3.0 Gb hard drives I will not need to use the primary IDE connector on the motherboard for any devices, do not connect anything to this connector??

However I have two IDE cd/dvd burners. Do I have to set these up as a primary and secondary system and connect both of them to the secondary IDE connector on the motherboard??

Or do I not mess with the primary/secondary jumpers on the drives and just connect them to the secondary IDE connector.
