If the power supply is not modular some manufacturers also supply adaptor cables (e.g. molex to sata) so you can use different hardware configurations.
The power supply that I have is modular and it has 4 plugs attatched on the cable for me to add 4 drives in the 4 bays, if I want. I'll open the case tomorrow and look to see if the sata plug is really needed.

At the moment one plug is being used to supply the 500 GB HDD that I have Slackware on.
The rest of the cable I have one of those ties on it so it doesn't lay on the fan to the processor.

BTW, I started reading the Users Guide for LILO.
I don't want to make a mess of the etc/lilo.config file.

The only time I ever used LiLo was when I installed Red Hat 7. I know nothing about it so I am looking forward to seeing what you do.

LOL:-

I (think) I can just edit the /etc/lilo.conf file and add Debian and the kernel image like this: (just an example)
Code:
image= /boot/kernel 3.10.7-Debian
label = Debian
read-only
root = /dev/sdb1
LILO is already installed to the MBR so this should be a reasonably easy task when I'm done learning.

The Gentoo Wiki is easier to understand than the LILO Users Guide.

That will work until you update your debian kernel, then you will have to boot into slackware, edit lilo.conf and rerun lilo whenever the debian kernel is upgraded. IMHO a better solution in to install grub to debians disk-mbr from debian and create a chainload entry in lilo.conf.

Well I don't want to have to keep re-editing lilo every time the Debian kernel is upgraded.

So, how exactly would I create a chainload entry in in lilo.conf?

I honestly don't know how to colorpurple; please elaborate a tad-

add this entry to lilo.conf and rerun lilo, assuming grub in installed to mbr of debian hard drive.
Code:
other = /dev/sdb
  label = debian

Thanks!-

Grub isn't installed to the mbr of Debian yet; but it will be as soon as I get my hands on that cable I need.

Upon opening the case to my desktop today I see that I did need to order the SATA cable after all; so I did.

My 500 GB HDD is on the bottom bay of my case. I'll most likely install the 1 TB HDD in the next bay up from the bottom. I'll have to take the other side of the case off but it doesn't appear that I'll have to take the front of the case off. The holes for the screws to hold the HDD in are on the side's of the drive.
I don't want to install the drive laying on it's side.

Why that's an option just seems odd to me. (have the drive on it's side.

Once I get the cables next week installing Debian should be a breeze.

The desktop can sit for a while unhooked. I'm not up for hooking up the monitor, keyboard and etc. all over again just to re due what I've done.

I just successfully installed the 1 TB HDD.

The power supply plug was in the way so I had to disconnect it.
Getting to the SATA plug on the board was incredibly frustrating but it's plugged in now-

I'm trying to install Debian now but having trouble so I started a new thread for help.

Look at mouse pointer, your devices aren't listed there?
That's where you select from.
Soory it took out mouse. You don't use drop-down menu you just click directly on device

Yes-
It's set to default so I've tried moving down to HDA ATI SB and raise all of the columns up and still no sound.

I'll try installing the ATI Catalyst driver and see if upon reboot if I have sound or not-
