Question about PC Desktops
If you are referring to the overall act of getting the hardware and installing it, you generally remove the appropriate drive bay cover where you want the burner to get installed, put it in, and line it up evenly. There should be two small screw holes on each side of the burner, and you will need to line these up with either the holes or slots on the side of the drive bay and place screws in them in order to hold the burner in place. For an IDE connection, you will need the IDE cable where you have the capability to connect two devices together and into the motherboard. One drive will connect to the end of the cable and one to the center. You will also need to connect a power connector from the power supply to the burner. There should be a male connection on the back of the burner. Usually you will set your jumpers where one player is the master and one is the slave, but in my experience I just set them both as masters. I have never had a problem doing this. Sometimes you will need to install the software drivers that come with the burner, but if you have a newer operating system, it should auto detect without you having to do more. Other than that, you just need good burning software.
