Why does it matter if the cdroms installed?

I think its because one end of the IDE must go into the mobo, one into the cdrom, and one into hdd1, meaning no more plugs of the IDE cable.

Linux is the only option that will support more than 1 hd at a time. You can install a switch for the power, allowing you to boot to use one drive or the other.

thanks caster I was not quite sure on that. And the switch is a proven method for having more than 1 hd in the box.

According to Caster linux is the only thing that supports 2 drives.

You can however have more than 1 HD installed and choose which one to load from when turned on.
I use the Xtender2 mod ( http://www.teamxtend...ions&file=index ) which works well since the release of the new Hydra cable. It supports up to 3 hard drives plus the DVD.
