Hard Drive Questions.

  1. I'm new to building computers, I've always bought Dells so I never really needed to learn anything. Any Advice on building My PC would be appreciated. My main question for now is, is it possible to run more than one internal harddrive. If so how would I go about setting it up. Any Advice you can email to me at *****@***.***. Thanks

    yes you can have more than one hard drive in a box.
    you can hook them up 2 to a cable
    or one to a cable
    each cable can handle 2 devices (a master (bootable) hard drive and a slave hard drive
    on the primary EIDE slot)
    or a master hard drive and a slave cd-rom drive on the primary EIDE slot)
    the same configuration goes for the secondary EIDE slot
    jumper settings on the drive indicates whether it's master or slave
    and whether it's at the end of the cable (master) or in the middle of the cable (slave)
