Env: Pentium 120, 2 IDEs. Win98.

I have a problem to keep the BIOS settings (maybe due to a battery failure), so every time the CMOS setting goes to default seeings.
The "default" settings only have the first master HD be "AUTO". Thus I can only use one HD.
How can I add a second HD in this situation withou changing the battery-embeded COMS chip?
(Currently the second HD is connected as first slave and can be detedted by COMS, but it backs to default as soon as power up)
