Just open the case and you will find space under the CD-ROM drive, 
including the mounting frame (if all is correct).

To improve performance attache the second HD to the CD cable & the CD to 
the 'slave' connector. You do have to fiddle with mounts of the CD etc 
but when that's done the speed increase over the 'normal' master - slave 
configuration is worth it. Read - write commands do not have to wait for 
the other disk to finish.

succes, casper
