The 80pin cable allows the Drive Select jumper setting to work. One end goes to the motherboard, the middle connector goes to the slave and the end cable goes to the master.
Of course, if you set the master/slave jumpers if doesn't matter which one goes where.
It's an attempt to simplify IDE by making the cable position determine drive address (just like floppy drives have been since 1981!)
