Default Disabling a secondary HD

I have two harddrive connected. One is a ATA 133 16mb, the other a hand me down ATA 100 2mb. I heard if you connect them together they become ata 100 speed right? I was wondering, when I am trying to be annal about performance, if I disabled the ATA 100 by going to system under control panal, would the computer revert back to ata133? I would like to keep the ata 100 2mb for storage. Is it even safe to disable harddrive that way? Just a very curious question
