Hi, I coulnt find much under search, I was hoping someone can point me in the right direction for a tutorial on how to install a new hard drive. I have never done this before and Im not sure where the jumpers should be, should i put them in the same place as the old hard drive? After putting it in is there anything else I need to do, or just start installing windows?

Yes I know, very amiture type questions. Any help or if you can point me to a good guide on this it would be much appretiated.

Its for win xp, hd is western dig, wd caviar se, if any of that matters.

thanks again in advance.
Mike

Edit = in manual it says for single, no jumper shunt required " should i take the jumper out then?
The default is "cable select" should i just it like that?

here show it is

if you have 2 drives on one cable you make one master and one slave.

If you just have one drive choose Cable select, or master. Thats what I have always done. If you get it wrong, the worst thing thats ever hapened to me is that the drive wont be detected.
