I have a windows 98 computer here. I have two different hard drives plugged in. one is attached to a data cable with a spot for two hard drives, and the other once is a different color (blue), with two slots as well. i believe the blue data cable is the master because it only has one opening, since the other end is attached to the cd drive (for bootup). I thought that when i had oppened the computer up though, that the other hard drive was attached to the blue cable. anyway, i boot it up, and i don't get into windows. i get something like this:
detecting ide primary master... wdc
detecting ide primary slave... matbleepa
detecting ide secondary master... none
detecting ide secondary slave... maxtor
