    Two Questions

    Does having both a CD rom and a CD rewrite speed up the copying time form
    one disc to another, and is the benifits of having two CD drives (one to
    read, one to write) worth the hassle of fitting them.

    How do I go about fitting an extra CD drive, Is it just as simple as
    plugging the IDE cable into any available port and swithing it on?

    1.) Yes it speeds copying up, as no image file has to be written.

    2.) It is almos as simple as that. Just check out for the Master / Slave
    Jumpers. On one IDE Channel you can have one Master and one Slave unit.
