  1. I did a raw format. Everyting is running fine however my hard drive is showing as primary IDE slave.My cd is showing fine as secondary master. Does this matter?

    Change the jumper to Master. If it's the only drive on the primary channel, you can use CS (Cable Select)...

    If everythings running you can leave it as is I suppose

    the hard drive is on its own cable with the master plugged in. My cd is set to cs and has its own cable on master

    IDE Hard Drives do... Give me the make and model of your C drive and I'll give you the jumper settings
