Yes, you can use, Please see label attached to the harddrive for a jumper setting to become primary harddrive.
in the DVD rom there's also a label on it. but the most common setting is slave is in the center.
C S M -
the jumper is set to center to become a slave.
the hard drive is should be a master
connecting to the other end of the IDE cable.

I'll assume you're using windows xp, but in any case have you tried going to my computer>manage>disk management to see if it appears? If not, refer to pg 8 or pg 14 of this article to Install a hard drive. You may have to enter the bios (F1 at boot) to allow the new drive. Also see this link to your bios setup screens.
If you're still having problems after looking through this info and checking the bios setup, write back and we'll be happy to help sort it out...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
