Recently I have connected two HDD's on Primary IDE
and CD-Rom on secondary IDE.

Previously there was only 1 HDD on Primary IDE and 1 CD-Rom on secondary IDE.
With this setup it was working fine. Now when i added extra HDD on same Primary IDE channel; users face problem of system slow while they access this system from network. Previously it was working fine.

1st HDD = Maxtor 40GB [Has XP Operating System & Tally server (Accounting software accessed by user on network]
2nd HDD = Western Digital 40GB (Shared for users for storing data)

Kindly suggest what should i do??

OS: Windows XP Professional SP2
Processor: 1.6Ghz
RAM: 512MB
