    Well it depends. If a harddrive is used on the same channel as a zip or cd then master/slave will cause the least problems. For 2 Hd on same channel, especially RAID cable select is best.

    Depends on the motherboard. Cable Select is usually used when the drive is the only device on that channel. When you have two devices, you must do the master/slave relationship. But on most mobo's, when solo....use CS. Sure it works fine if you put a device as Master if by itself, I believe the only difference you'll have is the system will take a second longer on bootup, since it see's a master will hunt for a second and wait for a slave drive to announce itself.
