    I got and old 486 and 3 monitors yesterday, freebies. I looked at the 486 and the HD was set as a slave to the CD-ROM, I tried changing HD and CD-ROM settings, and it wouldn't work. Is this weird or what? Also it has only 1 IDE channel

    I'm guessing it's utilizing Cable Select - the position of the drive on the cable determines it's place in the heirarchy.

    That or it just searches the available drives till it finds something bootable?
