Master/slave issue

I currently have two drives: a CDRW and a seperate DVD drive. I am buying a DVDRW drive and would like to know what would be the best master/slave combination for these 3 drives and the hard drive. I only have two channels (is that what they are called?), so I need to pair the drives.

Thanks for your help

Now that you have a DVD-RW I would ditch the CD-RW. You don't want to put an optical drive on the same ribbon as a HDD.

Make the DVD-RW the master and the DVD the slave.
