Default Quick Question

I have a quick quesiton about this IDE cable that came with my mobo. Can I plug the yellow side into the mobo and use the other two for drives or do I have to plug the grey side into my mobo? Or does it even matter?

Please answer this quick question as soon as possible.
Much appreciated.

It doesn't matter. I plug it in whichever way I need to.

doesn't matter as long as pin 1 on the m/b leads to pin 1 on the drive
