Hi everybody, can I presume that my hard drive is on the primary IDE and that my CD player is on the secondary? If not, can someone please tell me how to find out. My OS is win200. Cheers

You need to take the case side of, and check where the ribbon cables go to. the motherboard EIDE sockets are marked 1 and 2

Yes, Hard Drives on IDE 1 (Primary) and CD/DVD ROMS on IDE 2 (Secondary). Normally it will tell you on the screen as you power up what the Primary and Secondary masters and slaves are.
