    Yes-you are correct.

    When you say 'IDE channel 1,' I'm going to assume that you mean the "First" IDE channel. The first HD is usually labeled "#0" and the second is "#1" -- and the same usually applies to IDE channels as well.

    HDD0=IDE channel 0 / HD-master
    HDD1=IDE channel 0 / HD-slave
    HDD2=IDE channel 1 / HD-master
    HDD3=IDE channel 1 / HD-slave

    Actually, you probably won't hurt anything if you set it to something else anyway. You can also pause the POST screen to see what you have installed and where it is installed.
