    It means a drive failed. You have two IDE channels, each can have a master and slave drive. The slave on the secondary channel failed. That position is usually used for an optical drive but it could be a hard drive. No way to know without knowing your system.

    What it means is that, either your computer thinks there should be something plugged into the secondary slave position (see mdaniel's post) and it can't find anything there and it's panicking, or there really is something connected there and it's burned out and whatever data was on that drive is gone.
