Yes I am an newbie. I have the following drives installed on my PC but want to add another HDD (7200rpm 40G).

Current configuration:
20G HDD IDE1 Master
40x CDROM IDE1 Slave
32x16x10 CDRW IDE2 Master
100Mb Zip IDE2 Slave
1.44 FDD

Can I add a second HDD in this situation? If so, where do I connect it (IDE1/IDE2 - Master/Slave) ? I could just drop my 100Mb Zip disk but I would prefer to keep it. Do I just daisy-chain it as a Slave?
