markoman, all in all there will be 5 things, a cd/dvd combo (for watching dvds and using cdroms) and cd-rw (for making and copying cds) a 40gb drive, a 80gb drive (for editing), and a floppy drive.
im not gonna have a cd drive, a dvd drive, and a cd-rw. that would just be dumb and pointless in my opinion. but i like having two drives just cause it makes copying cds really simple, and im used to it on this computer. but thanks for all of the good info.
