One of the two IDE conectors is already taken by the existing factory-fitted drive, so the simplest route is to buy another NON-SATA IDE DRIVE and connect it to the second IDE connector which sits alongside the one that's alrady in use. You will have to buy an 80-wire data ribbon cable in order to do that unless you already have one somewhere.
Also check that there is a spare 4-pin female molex power connector coming from the power supply unit. If not, you'll also need to buy a Y-connector which converts one molex 4-pin female connector into two female connectors.
