: I have two hardrives on my win98 IDE machine and I am wondering if anyone knows if it is better to run the two on the same IDE channel as master and slave or to run them on the seperate channels as master and master (with the CDs as slaves)

: Thank you
: Please respond to mailto:Remco@one.net

I run a 30GB and13GB as master and slave on the primary controller and every thing works fine. If you are going to run raid 1 you will have to put your hard drives on separate controllers. Running them on the same controller gives you the option of disableing the secondary controller if you want to free up a IRQ for some thing else.
