G'Day offthewild,

For information about the jumper settings for your Samsung™ HDD, have a look at this, it is a .pdf document for the Installation of this particular HDD.

Now once you have set the jumpers to 'Master', you will need to connect it to the end connector of the IDE ribbon; then, connect to the "Primary IDE" socket of the motherboard. (Your manual will give you the indication as to which is 'Primary' and which is 'Secondary')

As for your CD/DVD drive, this usually is connected to the "Secondary IDE" socket on the motherboard, and also with its jumper pin set to 'Master'.
However, (and just to confuse you :grin:) if you only have one IDE connector Ribbon/ Motherboard IDE socket, you will need to connect the two this way...

The HDD set to "Master" and on the end connector, and the CD/DVD set to 'Slave' and connected to the middle connector on the IDE Ribbon.
Also you will need to set the BIOS of the computer in this fashion:

1st Boot Device Floppy Disc Drive [FDD] (if available)
2nd Boot Device HDD (The Samsung™)
3rd Boot Device CD-ROM (your CD/DVD Drive)
You will need to set the BIOS to Boot from Other Bootable Devices as well.

Now if you do not have a FDD; then, the Boot Order will be like this:

1st Boot Device CD-ROM
2nd Boot Device HDD
3rd Boot Device Other
