I am using Epox EP-58MVP3C-M motherboard. I wanted to install 3 HDD and 1 CD-rom. But the CMOS only detected the primary master and slave only.

But if I install 3 HDD without CD-rom, the CMOS can detected all the HDD but one of the HDD does not appear in Windows 98 OS! How should I make it appear?

Check your device manager under hard disk controllers. There should be a primary IDE AND a secondary IDE controller present. If not, you may need to re-enable the secondary controller in your CMOS setup.

Make certain that the third hard drive is set to Master and the CDRom is set to Slave.

If you don't have the CDRom hooked up, the third hard drive must be set to "single drive" or "master, no slave". On many drives, this is done by removing the jumper altogether.

Make sure that your secondary cable is good, and that it's inserted into the CDRom with the red stripe towards the power connector.

I have a pretty silly question on polarity of led
connectors to motherboard. Although motherboard connections are clearly marked, there are no indications on cables coming from case. Does it

Some do matter, In general, first think of red as positive, black or white as negative. Then go from there.
