    Theres generally a set of 3 pins (6 total - vertical pairs) You must place a jumper over the 2 marked MS (Master) This should be label on the drive, there may also be a diagram on the top/bottom of the drive too. If not, its generally the 2 pins closests to the IDE cable.

    In most cases the drive will work in any of the 3 positions - Cable Select, Master, Slave if the drive is alone on the cable, but not always - so you could boot up and see if the drive is recognised on any pin settings you try(CS, SL, MS).
