A lightning strike fried my mother boad and I moved the hard drive to another machine about the same vintage. Yea it's kind of old. I was running 98se but now it won't boot to windows but I can access the hard drive. Problem is I am trying to backup files to a slave drive but the new system does not assign a drive letter to the slave drive (2nd hdd). I've tried every jumper setting I could think of and even moved it over to the cdrom ide interfrace and it still doesn't assign a drive. The bios recognizes it but I can not access it without a drive letter assignment. Primary is a 40G WD. 2nd 6 GHD is a fujitsu.

Try it as master on the 2d IDE channel (I assume this is where your CD is connected).
