With newer SATA drives you shouldn't have to set any jumpers. Just plug them in and go. This should be the same for dual SATA drives. They should each have thieir own cable .. I have not seen a dual SATA drive. I would have to check the manual. You CAN install them into any sata port but I suggest not plugging them into an SATA port meant for setting RAID configurations.

Yes they are just like installing hard drives but with much more bandwidth to work with than the old ribbon cable. And I understand now your clarification on multiple drives.

Welcome to the advancements in technology. SATA is both a speed and ease of use improvement over IDE (PATA). There are no jumpers to set. The only concern you might have is if your machine has different speed SATA ports or if you have a RAID controller that you are using for RAID. Other than that just connect both ends of the cables and you're good to go.
