2 CDroms : how can I tell which is slave/master?

    I have a CDrom in both D drive and E drive, and I've a suspicion they
    may not be configured correctly. I want to check it.

    When the PC is booting up, there is all that white text on a black
    background (MS-DOS?) and I have seen 2 lines mentioning Slave & Master
    shoot by, but it's SO quick I can't read the whole line! Seriously,
    it's like lightening!

    Is there any way I can break in and pause these messages? If not, is
    there anywhere in Windows where it will tell me?

    Any help really appreciated!

    Thanks

    No it isn't DOS. Have another guess.
