Unless you have a Dell (or some other prebuilt computers) don't worry about cable select. You should have one optical drive on master and one on slave, and you should have one hard drive on master and the other one on slave. I had the same problem with my drives when I moved them; one was on master and the other cable select and it didn't pick it up. For each "set" of drives (i.e. primary and secondary) you'll need a master and a slave. I don't know what you do if you have 3, though, I think the cable select may come into play there or it can't be done.

if you have 3 ide hard drives and 2 optical drives you'll have to get an ide controller card for the 3rd ide hard drive and it would be master on that channel.
