IDE connectors.

Today (in my procrastinating ON mode) I decided to fix on my bedroom server (TM) the problem
primary ide channel no 80 conductor installed

Now, I just replaced the cable with a proper 80conductor one that I had lying around, and I discovered an inconvenient truth: my two HDs only function if one is master and one is slave. Not "one" as in "either", "one" as in "that very one". They don't care about jumper settings. THey ignore cable select. They function only in that specific mode. Can't see why.
