Jumper Settings

Hi I am building a PC at the moment and I will be using two 10.2 Quantum Fireball drives as I don't have have a 20Gig, which will do for my work.
They are formatted NTFS if I use Win ME will I have to format them FAT 32.
What should I set the jumpers at on the drives.

I think winme only works with fat32 you should set 1 drive to master and place it at the end of the ribbon cable and the other to slave connected in the middle of the cable.

If they are formatted NTFS you will need to delete the NTFS partitions and recreate the partitions and format them FAT32.
You can do this from a Win9x boot disk using the FDISK utility and delete the NON-DOS partitions.

You can also do it by installing the drives as slaves into an win200/XP PC and do it from the disk management console.
