Default Installing new harddrive on iMac G3

I am upgradding the hard drive on a iMAC G3 (GREEN, ALL-IN-ONE CPU and MONITOR). What jumper setting do I need to see the hard drive too. Master? Slave? Cable Select? Misc?

I am installing a new Seagate 40Gb Hard Drive.

Remove the old hard drive. Check the jumper settings on that. Replicate said settings on new hard drive. Install. Enjoy.
