    If you have a floppy cable with 2 connectors just connect it to the second one....no jumpers on FDD drives.

    With the right cable it should be no problem. Just put it in and hook it up.

    Check the bios and see if it needs to be set for it when you boot up. Some bios settings include activating the drive and telling the computer what it is.
