Default dvd re-writers argggh

I am installing my first dvd re-writer. Unfortunately I ordered it from dabs.com so it has arrived with no wires or instructions. so although I have managed to connect it to the power supply I have also pluged in the ribbon thing at the back. I havent a clue what to do next or whether I should make it a master or a slave and what to set the cd-rom to.

please help me Im really stuck

Assuming it is the only drive installed, set it to master and plug it wherever you like on the cable and attach the other end to IDE1
