    Do I just need to buy a dual IDE cable which will allow me to connect a dvd-rw and dvd-rom drive to one ide channel? What is the correct name for such a cable? Will a 80 wire cable work?

    yea you just need a cable with 3 sockets on it, one for each drive and one to go to the motherboard. its pretty standard to do this...

    Oh right, thanks. It's my first time to build a computer from scratch.

    Cheers!
