These days most folks rely on Cable Select (CS) and it doesn't matter where the drives are attached.
Less known is the "old" way - where the drive at the far end of the cable is set to "Master" - and the one attached to the middle of the cable is set to "Slave". I prefer the old way when dealing with cranky systems - but find that CS will work most times.
I don't think you can mix the Cable Select and Master/Slave options - but may be mistaken.
