If you leave it at cable select the cable will set the drive to either master or slave depending on where it is on the cable, the first or second connector. Just make sure any other drive hooked up is set to cable select.

Your best option is to actually set each drive to master and slave. Each drive should show you where to put the jumper. Make sure you only have one master and slave though.

Which jumper to use? The one thats already on the HD...?
:D

I have a maxtor H.D. model # 31024h1 , i cannot find the jumper settings to distinguish between master and slave


Typically, for older MAXTOR drives, put the jumper on the 2 pins closest to where the ribbon-cable connects, to set it to 'MASTER'.
Remove all the jumpers to set it to 'SLAVE'.

How to set jumpers in an old quantum fireball Lct20 HD. The master mode needs to be "jumpered"


Please look on top of your HD and u will see a table that show u the HD jumper setting (Master, Slave or Cable Select).
Then look again the rear side of the HD and u will see some pin that locate beside the power input of the HD, that is the jumper pin.

Now set the jumper according to your requirement refer to the jumper setting table just now. To set it just unplug the jumper (look like a U shape contactor covered with plastic) and plug it back according to the requirement. Sometime u may lost the jumper contactor, nevermind just use what ever conductor cable to roll between the two pin and make sure the pin is connected that all.

Swap two hard drives


Indeed you can. Make sure the jumper settings are identical for the swap, and as long as the replacement one has windows xp running on it you should be fine.
