Re: New box
I'd slave it to the dvd drive. Just checking, you have a 80 pin ide flat
cable? Since the computer is new, you should. If you don't, replace the
40pin cable with a 80 pin. It will make transfers way faster. Its good
for dvd playing and cd recording.
I know this is OT, but I am running Debian Etch -
I picked up a new computer last light - 2.4 ghz with a dual core
processor....put my hd from my old machine in it...and WOW! I thought
Etch was fast before on my 450mhz P3.
This however is just the lead in to a question I am hoping the gurus
here can answer.The computer came with an LG DVD player - but I'd like
to install my CD burner in as well. Etch recognizes the DVD drive as
/dev/hdd. Question is [OT alert] should I make the CD burner the slave
to the DVD, or should I make it the slave to the HD? The Intel board
only has two IDE connectors or is there a better way ?? Sorry guys
definitely OT for this list.
