You can put it into a different computer but you will need to set the jumper on the 20GB hard drive as "slave"to avoid a conflict with the main hard drive.

yep

yeah, but you only want the jumper set as slave if you are adding it to a cable with one drive on it already set to master.

if you are adding a new cable, set it as master.
