Two ways:

One way (I use successfully): Set both the Master (main drive) and the Second drive (slave) to C/S (Cable Select) via the jumpers on the drives themselves. Then, the Main drive will be on the terminating end of the IDE cable. The placement of the drives on the cable with cable/select determines which is which.

Two: Set the Main drive's jumpers to Master and the Slave drive's jumpers to Slave and place them with the Main drive on the terminating end of the IDE cable and the Slave drive on the middle outlet.

Then, boot to BIOS and make sure the BIOS sees both drives as what they are. Just 'poke' around the BIOS a bit, you'll probably see how to do that. If not, just ask, or check on Google for BIOS configuration info for your bios.
