Unhappy DVD-RW Installed - Now Won't Boot

I have a Emachine w2888 that has a Samsung CD-RW/DVD factory installed. I have been trying to install a second drive that is a LiteOn DVD-RW. I have set the jumpers to "Master" & "Slave". Now system (OS Windows XP SP2) will not complete boot sequence. It hangs after placing icons on desktop and does not ever fully boot. I am completely stumped. I've tried different brands of DVD-RW and same problem. If I Put the DVD-RW as master and don't hook up the CD-RW at all it never boots at all. Any Help ??????
