Master or Slave? What to pick...?

I have a DVD-ROM Drive and a DVD-Writer. I do not know which to set as slave and which as master. I do not know which my motherboard reconmmends because I lost my manual. I have also read something about putting the DVD-Writer on the same cable as my hard drive...

Please give me your suggestions,
Thanks
