should 2 hard disks be on same IDE chanel

The Primary and Secondary hard drives should be on the Primary IDE Channel - the Secondary IDE Channel should be used for an optical drive or two drives.

Some people don't always agree with this setup, but it is the basic configuration in the majority of cases.
