I got a Maxtor 300Gb hard drive (IDE) for Christmas and I've connected it as a slave to my existing Maxtor 40Gb drive. I've been installing games on the new drive, but they take forever to startup! I know that this isn't the best way to set them up, but I'm a bit in the dark about hard drives. I have two IDE slots on my motherboard, should I connect them in another way? Should my OS be on the largest drive? Do I need to partion it to make it work faster?? Also, will it make a big difference to the speed at which the games play if it's used as a slave?? Cheers.
