ok here is new setup and results:
hdd on "hdd1 ide primary"
then dvdrom as master jumper on "master" part of ide on "hdd2 ide secondary"
then cd rw as slave jumper on "slave" part of ide on "hdd2 ide secondary"
it boots to hdd fine...
in bios, it shows maxtor hdd as primary master, it shows cdrw as secondary slave.
it doesnt show up the dvd, it has some settings under primary slave still, but none under secondary master still
here are the options it shows under primary slave:
"lba mode control"
"32 bit i/o"
"ultra dma mode"
seeing those options make me think it recognizes hardware, it just odesnt know what it is or osomething? the type for it is set as "auto" fyi
