Default Quick Drive placement question

if i have a DVD-rom, and a DVD-RW drive in one machine... is it better to put them both on the secondary EIDE? or should i put 1 as (MA)secondary and the other (SL)primary?

I'd say put them both on the secondary IDE, but it shouldn't make much difference.

Wont make much of a difference, but if space permits I would put them on their own.

But since their usually one ontop of another, you need to have 2 DVD's on one IDE cable usually

Either way should work fine on most motherboards.
