Thank you for posting this question as am doing the same thing today too. However, mine is a SEAGATE MOMENTUS 40GB UATA100 9.5MM 2.5LP 10MS 5400RPM in a smaller USB / Fireware Enclosure.
IF SOME ONE DOES HAVE A SIMPLER METHOD OF DOING THIS UNDER WINDOWS 98 / XP, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
Basically what I am doing is slaving the drive in my desktop PC. I will be either FDISKing or using PARTITION MAGIC while this drive is connect on my Desktop PC's IDE Channel.
I sent up BOTH my PARTITION and the FORMAT the drive while it's connected to my PC.
Scanning the Disk for errors is advisable.
And then I put the drive into the enclosure.
And then you should be right to go.

How do i do the jumpers, and anyone have any thoughts on it.
Just leave the jumpers on Master or Cable Select. It should not really matter there.
