I want to put a new HD to my PC, but i dont know how. :(
I already have a HD in there and i will leave that one in there.

I emailed compaq so they can tell me how to and this is what they told me.....

1. Hard drive will be connected to Primary IDE Controller with cable
select mode option.
2. CD-ROM drive will be connected to the Secondary IDE Controller with
cable select mode option.
3. CD-RW drive will be connected to the Secondary IDE Controller with
cable select mode option.

Now, you can connect the second hard drive to the Primary IDE Controller
with cable select mode.
I really dont understand that, so can one of you translate it to 'english' plz.
