Just a quick sanity check into the hypothetical - Let's talk about the Rev A imac and its IDE busses.
I already know that i can put a double headed IDE cable on Bus1 and a Y on the hard drive power connector and run a second hard drive. With the exception of it being disembodied from the case, it works great. but has anyone ever done something similar to Bus0 (the 50 pin bus for the CD)?
What I am wondering is this:
I have a CD-RW that has a jumper setting for slave/master installed - could I tack the original drive (as master) and this drive (as slave) and get both running? I see know reason why i could not, but I do wonder about the particulars since this is a 50pin drive and not vanilla 40 like the main hard drive.
If anyone has ever stuck two drives on a bus like this, or know something I should here, please chime in (that means you too dr.bob).
