You also want to move the IBM to IDE1 to avoid 1/2 speed throttle
situations. Don't forget to update /dev/fstab and the /dev/cdrom and/or
/dev/cdr links before you reboot.

IDE0/M /dev/hda 30GB
IDE0/S /dev/hdb 40GB
IDE1/M /dev/hdc CD-RW

Better disk I/O
IDE0/M /dev/hda 30GB
IDE1/M /dev/hdc 40GB
IDE1/S /dev/hdd CD-RW


IDE0/M /dev/hda 30GB
IDE0/S /dev/hdd CD-RW
IDE1/M /dev/hdc 40GB
