Right-click My Computer - select Manage... - then select Disk Management. Swap one drive letter to a spare letter lower down the list, swap drive 2 to drive 1's original drive letter, then swap drive 1 to drive 2's old letter.

That's for XP by the way. Are you sticking with 98 now?

yes xp was no no as the motherboard is old, so how do i set the roms on 98se as i wasnt sure i had the jumpers in the right place on the cd roms

The mechanical way!
Put both CD drives on the Secondary IDE cable but make the writer drive Master and the reader drive Slave (with the jumpers set appropriately).

It might work! (:0)
