Your IDE cable has two connectors at one end, the last of the two should be connected to the master hadd, and the jumper on the back of that hdd will be in the master location. The second connector will go to the hdd that is the slave, and the jumper on the back of that hdd will go in the slave location. Your computer should then be able to recognize the configuration.

If you have problems from there, you may need to go into the BIOS and enable "auto detect".

Let us know if this helps please.
