Default Instaling a PATA and a SATA HDD on same system.

Okay, I have a PATA WD800 with all my movies, music, and pictures on it, and a brand new SATA WD3200 with all my games, op. system, and various other stuff on it. My CD drives are PATA to, and I only have one slot, so their hooked to that. I have 4 SATA slots, so I got this for my PATA HDD

But I can't seem to get the WD800 to work. I'm starting to think it's a jumper problem. If I want the WD800 to be a slave were should i put the jumper on the HDD, and on the adapter, and which SATA slot should I plug it into?

Thanks in advance, Derrick.

The link doesn't work. Your hard drive should have a master and slave diagram for the jumper setting on it. Follow it and know where the pins are aligned.
