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.
I think I should have made myself more clear on what he dos'ent believe. I already set everything up like you said and transfered everything from the old HDD to the new(now the Master) HDD. Now he wants to dump all the info from the slave( old HDD) and use it only to install and play games from.
