    I currently have a CD ROM connected to the same IDE Cable as the Hard Drive....I am connecting a CD Burner which I will be hooking to the same IDE cable as my ZIP Drive....my floppy has an IDE Cable of it's own.....is there a better way to hook the hardware up?..If so, may I ask what?..And which should be set to Master and which should be set as Slave?..Thank you.

    Make the burner master and the zip slave. the rest looks fine to me.

    Doing disk to disk burns will work well with the cd on the primary and the burner on the slave.

    Might have to make burner slave, depends, some like master, some like slave.
