Hello, jemz, one usually sets it as the hdd that you will install your OS to. When you enter BIOS [by pressing the Delete key] there will be a selection in there at the boot menu page. Your boot disk, if IDE, should be Primary. If you have been using the sys successfully and have not made any hardware changes then there should be no need to bother with this.
When starting your system in order to run Setup [installation pgm] it is best if you use the BIOS one time Boot Menu - it differs with machines but you generally enter it with F2 F8 or F11 key press [your BIOS front page should tell you which], select your cd drive and away you go.
