What size in Gigabytes is the primary Harddrive?

Did you try it on the secondary IDE?

Yes you can but some drives have a difficult time shareing the same ribbon. This problem seems to be more evident when you have a very large drive like a 160G connected with a smaller, perhaps 20 or 40G drive or also putting a CDROM as a slave to a very large drive. Usually 2 CDROMs on the same ribbon will work but will cause problems if you try to copy a CD from the reader directly to the burner.

I hope that made a little sense.
