Default Need Help, New parts instalation.

Okay, first off. Hi :P

So im ordering/ordered new CPU mobo RAM and case. i have all the other parts that i need. heres a list of what i have
1x SATA Hard drive
1x IDE Hard drive
Mobo- for Intel pent 4
Mobo- AMD x2
Ram for both
2x PSU w/ enough power
all optical drives, etc.

I am gona take the SATA and put it w/ X2 Mobo+Proc+Ram+Case(New stuff that is) But i need to save some files but i only have these two hard drives to work with.

Can i put the IDE hard drive on my optical drive's IDE Ribbon cable?
if so what settings? Mstr/slve/what?


Can i move the installed files ( its Call of Duty 2) to the other hard drive if it works and then once i reformated/reinstalled windows on new computer transfer them back to SATA?

I need some help quick, the parts are showing up tomorrow. and NO i dont have the discs for the COD2

you can put the drives on the same line but its not very good for speeds and wat not. its better to put them on seperate channels

But if they have to be on the same set the optical in master and the hdd in slave
