I'm about to buy a dvd writer so will have the following:

Hard Drive
DVD Rom
DVD writer
and CD writer

As I will be mostly writng from hard drive to disk, should I put the DVD and CD writer on the secondary ide channel and put the dvd rom as the slave on the primary?

At the moment my spare is the primary slave. If I move the DVD Rom from secondary master to primary slave, wil XP keep it as the D drive, if not is it possible to re-assign the drive in XP?

if you put the dvd rom on slave to the dvdrw you may get unchecked buffer underrun but you can move it to hard drive and then to dvdrw.
