If I remember correctly, any 40-pin IDE drive will work and the CD/DVD drive has to be set to SLAVE as the HDD is the MASTER.
Keep in mind if you install a DVD drive it will only read the DVD disc and not write/rewrite/burn to it.

Now this sounds very interesting indeed. Do you remember which units you used? Have you created a tutorial about this?

Thanks again.
