Install IDE drive as boot drive

I need to install an IDE hard drive mobile rack into this PC, and tell the BIOS that this is the boot drive instead of the SCSI "A" drive. There is an open IDE controller plug on the motherboard. I will be using the PC to learn and test remote installs from a WIN2K server onto a blank hard drive, and also for normal use - hence the need for a physically swapable hard drive. I have sucessfully done this on 2 PC's that are IDE based, but have no experience with SCSI drives. Where do I go in the BIOS to change this. Please note that I also will be using the 2 SCSI drives, so I don't want to disable either of them. Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions. Doug McRae
