I dont know if this matters, but its an WD ATA serial hard drive. And I havent messed with any of the wires so i would assume (maybe wrongly) that the people at ibuypower would not put them on the same cable. The thing that i cant figure out is that BIOS used to allow me to select the order in which to boot and my dvd drive was one of the options. Now, its not there.
Thanks,
Joe
