First, make sure that you have your hard drive set properly. Your main hard drive HAS to be set to Master, secondary as slave. Also, you can have.. um... CS (cable select), where you just put the jumpter to CS, and it'll automatically set itself to be master/slave.
If you decide to use the CS option, be aware that both drives on the cable must be set to CS, not just one of them.
Also, when you have 2 drives on one cable (master + slave), the master drive must be on the end of the cable. Slave drive must be in the middle.
As a general rule, you can have 4 drives (not counting floppy) in a system. So add up how many CD/DVD drives you have + number of hard drives. If total is less that 4, you should be alright.
(It isn't as simple as this with SCSI or SATA systems though)
