Normally (and in my case) this would be the case:
IDE Channel 1: HDD master, DVD slave
IDE Channel 2: Writer master, slave empty
I don't have any experience with a dual writer setup so I can't help you with that. What I do know is that Nero won't write if the writer and source are on the same IDE channel (eg. when the HDD and writer are on IDE1). So what you're suggesting would do the trick presuming you use the HDD or DVD as source when writing.
But like I said: I have no experience with this...
