For most IDE drives, if you REMOVE the jumper, the drive becomes a slave. But, you'll also need to change "drive 1" in your BIOS to recognize the second drive.
If you look on the drive, there should be a scheme as to the mode (Master, Slave,etc.).
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: is there a jumper setting
There should be, look on the rear of the drive, close to the SATA and power connectors, you should see the jumper connections as well.
It varies from drive to drive, but the jumper setting could be engraved near the connector, look of SL for a slave setting.
If no, look on the label on the top of the drive, there should be the jumper settings listed there.
Some may be ambiguous, my last one offered the option of Master on / off. (Jumper in position 1 for on, no jumper for off) The off in this case was of course slave.
The result being, no jumpers - Slave.
