    I have a SCSI hard drive installed in the computer as well as a IDE CD-ROM.
    OS is on the first partition of the SCSI. I want to add an IDE drive. All
    plugged in. Only works when I have the jumper of the IDE set to cable
    select, and then it tries to boot from the IDE and it's not supposed to do
    that! Setting the jumpers to slave and the computer tells me there's a
    problem with the jumper settings.

    Is your IDE drive a Western Digital by any chance?

    No, it's a Deathstar. But it works fine as master/slave in another machine.
    I have one HDD on SCSI, one HDD on Primary IDE, one CD on Secondary IDE. If
    I have the jumpers on the IDE HDD set as Master, this IDE HDD boots as C,
    and loads the OS that was installed on that. If I have the jumpers set any
    other way the computer doesn't like it.

    Don't know the board, think it's a generic Compaq. IDE is onboard, SCSI is
    on a PCI card.
