i do ot see how you can have more then 2 ide masters and 2 slaves considering that you can only attach up to 4 ide ddvices per controller, unless you have an extra copntroller card, and i dont even think i know if that will work.
and you have a raid mobo? so do i, the other two ide connections are if you have your ide devices hooked up in a raid array. So if you have 4 devices hooked up, one for each ide connector on the board, i dontknow how this is working, becuasei was under the impression that i hadto use one or the other.
anyone please correct me if i am wrong. i would like to be ceretan about this myself
But, if you are going to set up the devices, i think the best wayto do it is have two of your hard drives hooked to ide1 as slave and master, master being the drive with the OS on it, and then hook up the cd-rom as master on ide2.
hope that helps, and hope i got that correct.
