Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. The limiting factor here is how many EIDE channels the motherboard has. I cannot recall ever seeing more than two EIDE channels, having looked a specs on a multitude of motherboards. You may have two devices on a single channel, one master and one slave. Having a hard drive and a cd drive on the same channel may work, but is not recommeded.
