Quicksilver's only have 1 5.25 sized drive. So you are limited to 1 CD-Rom

Here's a thread on the Pioneer 106 Drive.

Looks like you can get it to work, but you have to do some patching.

http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/ has some good info on how to do that, but it's not recommended. You can either get a faster combo drive (like the new Plextor with 4x DVD-R and 40x CD-R/W) or get an external FW drive. You can find external cases and CD-R/Ws for pretty cheap. Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/) is good for stuff like that.
