So I made this instructable after years of trolling and reading around i finally had the guts to make my own. In a nutshell I'm showing you how to install hardware (in this case two IDE hard drives and two IDE optical drives) into an IDE machine.
Step 1: The stuff
Drives! Be they optical or hard disk, note that a computer will not boot up with out an operating system.
IDE ribbon cables i have many you probably only have one or two.
POOOOWWWWWWEEEEEEERRRRR (immature eh?) you need appropriate molex power Connections! or if you are doing this with sata... this guide is for IDE mind you... use sata power.
Tweezers you'll see
