ok guys i need some input

i was fixing a comp that the HDD lost the OS apprently

i fdisk the HD (installing win 98 SE) and when i went to use the disk wouldnt reconize the cd drive

i changed the drive same thing
i went to the command prompt and could not acces the drive (invald drive or somthing like that)
i piggied backed the drive on the HDD and same error. so i contuined with the install (boot with cd-rom support) and it worked fine.

i had to leave it be untill monday b/c it is a skool comp but should i worry

i am thinking the seccondarry controller failed but that is not it b/c it would recconize in the BIOS and at post..

WTF is going on:confused: :confused: :confused:

I take it the cd rom drive is config'd to either slave or master (jumpers) according to how you connect it?
