Specs: Windows XP, Intel Celeron
ON THE BACK THERE ARE 9 SMALL PINS WITH A JUMPER ON THE THE SECOND VERTICAL ROW AND I HAD THOUGHT IT WAS THE PLACE THAT YOU SET UP MASTER/SLAVE OPTION BUT " Oss 279" SENT ME THE JUMPER SET UP FOR MAXTOR AND THE ONE I THINK IT IS IS CABLE SELECT, WHAT IS CABLE SELECT AND SHOULD I JUST LEAVE IT ALONE? ALSO HOW WILL I LET THE COMPUTER KNOW THAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A SLAVE HARD DRIVE AND NOT LIKE THE ONE ALREADY INSTALLED , WHICH IS THE MASTER?

You're awfully impatient.

See your other Topic.

When using cable select both drives on a cable must be jumpered CS and they are distinguished as separate drives by their position on the cable. The blue connector attaches to the motherboard, the slave attaches to the gray connector (usually the middle connector) and the master to the black connector.

When using master/slave jumpering well, the drive you want to be master is jumpered as master, slave drive as slave.

Check to see how the drive that's in the computer now is jumpered. It's a compaq computer so it's probably jumpered as cable select (that's how compaq usually does it). Then jumper the drive you want to add accordingly.
