Im assuming your talking about boot order, in which case I would actually put CD/DVD as first boot order so if you have boot with say SGA or load a new OS all u gotta do is put the disk in, no messing around with boot menus. as far as master slave, the IDE HD has to be either on slave or cable select, since it is the ony IDE drive in there, you dont have to worry about setting master or slave with sata drives. as far as hard drive booting order, knowing linuxs bias as to putting linux first in grub menu ID put the linux hard drive on first, though Im not really certain as I have never used multiple hard drives with a different OS on each, i havent been able to afford it and my case doesnt have enough room, I boot all mine off one hard drive (I have most of it assigned to windows with 2 small 10 gb partitions, each with a different version of linux on it) and a 4 gb swap file. so, as far as hard disk priority im afraid your going to have to wait until someone one with a little more experience in this field then I to get on and answer it or play around with it yourself. or both, when im stuck with something and post a question im often still fiddling with the problem by the time someone gets on and answers lol.
