Windows XP. Primary HDD is Maxtor MXTL01E10 169GB SATA. There are only 4(four) horizontal inline posts with a jumper on #1 and #2. What is the master position? Both HDD drives show in the Bios. What must I do so that #2 will be listed in "computer" so I can transfer files?

First here is documentation for SATA hard drives from MAXTOR/SEAGATE.

Unlike E-IDE/PATA there is no slave or master in SATA.

SATA does not require messing with jumpers. There is no "master" or "slave" setting.

Go into your BIOS and point to the Maxtor drive as the primary. It should boot off of it.

That was a SATA 1.0 and SATA 2.0 issue.
