Default Hard drive master/ Slave Set up

Previously, I was able to a seperate cable for each device since I was using an Serial ATA hard drive. I had the following set up:

+ DVD Rom through IDE
+ DVD Burner through a seperate different IDE (not master slave)
+ Hard drive through Serial ATA

I had a hard drive failure. I sent my old hard drive back to seagate, and it doesn't look like I will be getting my new one for a while. I bought an IDE (ATA) hard drive to keep me occupied. So... I must now put the DVD Rom and DVD Burner on master/slave.

How should I do this???

I was thinking of the following:

+ Hard drive through IDE cable #1 on its own
+ DVD Rom through IDE cable #2 as a master
+ DVD Burner through IDE cable #2 as a slave
+ (Second hard drive through SATA once it gets back).

Does this seem to be good enough?

You have to set the hard drive as master/single as well even though it is on it's very own cable.
