I got a new wd2500ajjs a sata to ide adapter and an old dell dimension 8250. It is going to be ran as a small home server for pictures and music. It has its original 60gb seagate barracuda V drive with XP home on it and I want to install the WD one as a slave. The new hdd and adapter both work for sure but when I put it in the old computer it shows up as device 0 and the other dissapears, but when i switch the jumpers on the old one it show up but the old one is an "unknown device", there has to be one thing I am forgetting here, please try and tell me how to make the old one the master and the new one the slave I need to get it done soon. Thanks!!
