C Drive on a stand alone SATA as bootable vista.

I need to add a 2nd harddrive which will be on old type IDE with photos on etc which will be the only drive on the ribbon does this mean I set to primary or does the fact windows boots from the SATA mean I set it as secondary.

I will be checking BIOS for boot sequence as I know sometimes IDE tries to boot first.

just junper settings for IDE what to set for please.
