I have an IDE hard drive and a SCSI hard drive.  I am trying to make the SCSI hard drive the primary drive and the IDE drive the secondary.  I have my IDE as master and a CD-ROM connected to the same adapter as a slave.  How do I set this up?  Thank for your help!!

When your BIOS sees a bootable partition on the first IDE partition, then it will boot from that regardless of the SCSI drive.  If you set the partition on the IDE disk to non-bootable (using FDISK) and the one on the SCSI disk as bootable (using the SCSI BIOS and/or a SCSI FDISK-type utility) then it will boot from the SCSI drive.  You didn't mention which SCSI card you have, but it must have a bootable BIOS for this to work.
