Secondary IDE plug.. ??
I just put my computer back together (VIA-503+ / K6-2 300 ), and my mom found an old perfectly good 1.2 Gig HD laying around. Wanting to turn this thing into an MP3 depository, I eagerly put it into my case. Problem: My main IDE cable doesn't have any more plugs on it, but we had an extra IDE cable. When I put my comp. back together, I put the HD/CD cable into the plug marked "Primary". Could I hook the 2nd HD up to the IDE plug marked "secondary"? I've done some reading and every article that describes adding a second HD says to daisy-chain it with the master drive. What's wrong with using the Secondary slot? Is this for dual-booting or something? Thanks!
