I have an old IBM hard disk (540 MB). Can I use it as a slave drive, if my primary drive is a Maxtor 30G? If so, how can I change the jumper setting?
Make sure that the Maxtor drive is configured as master and not "computer select" (CS). Then make sure the IBM drive is set as a slave. If you don't have documentation for jumper settings, you'll have to look them up yourself. You can use a search engine to find the information you need. Alternatively, you can set them both to CS, but make sure you have an 80-conductor cable.
