S-ATA and IDE harddrives (jumper settings)

I'm in the process of building my first PC, and have a S-ATA Barracuda harddrive to use as my system drive. My current PC has an IDE harddrive partitioned into C: and D: and I hoped to include it in my new PC purely as a backup drive, ie:
C: S-ATA
D: IDE

My query regards the jumper settings. I know that S-ATA drives don't have these, but should I change the IDE drive to Slave even though its the only device in that particular channel?

No, it is still the master on that channel.
