Do you have any old boards, cards or drives laying around? Or any local pc store or repair shop may just give ya one. I've never bought any so I'm not sure who has them, maybe try radio shack?

Im sure you could just use a bit of foil.
Buying jumpers is not worth it.

You don't need to use jumpers. None of my hard drives have them.
