With all Western Digital IDE drives that I have ever owned, used, sold
and/or seen, you have to jumper it for Master or Slave if there is
another device on the channel with it.  Otherwise, you *must* simply
take the jumper off or it will not work.

If one reads the label on a Wester Digital hard drive, they should see a
diagram that shows the jumper placed on "sideways" if the drive is the
only device on the channel (though most work without any jumper, also).

I am sorry that I did not tell you this yesterday.  I was too busy
dealing with other mailing lists right then :-).
