What am I doing wrong!?

Having installed a new DVD RW on my friends machine I've set the jumper to 'Master' and changed the jumper on the existing DVD ROM to 'Slave'. However, although the existing DVD ROM works well, being able to read and install programmes from it, when the machine boots-up its says there is no secondary slave.

That's not a problem if it works OK - some optical drives simply don't show up in the BIOS auto detect routines - it's due to interface quirks.
