Are you referring to the jumper settings on hard drives? Because there are also jumpers on the motherboard for various settings.

Anyway, the master/slave thing is for when you have IDE devices in a chain.

How to Build Your Own PC - Setting Hard Drive Jumpers

by putting the jumpers in you connect the circuit between the two pins which will set the hard drive in the specific mode you desire.

Almost a thing of the past as sata drives do not require jumper settings for master-slave-cs.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
