That is actually a matter of preference and depends on what other devices you would use.

I would set the jumper to Primary/Master and be sure to connect the IDE cable to the primary IDE Channel.

Well, no IDE hard drives are NON-PnP. CD-Roms may be, because DOS needs drivers to find them.

But your jumper config is not going to affect whether you can install those drivers or not.

As long as you only have 1 primary/master 1 primary/slave, etc. etc.

Actually, what I think he is refering to as "PNP HDD" is Cable Select.

Designate Master/Slave. If you have a newer MoBo, you can designate Cable Select and it acts kinda like PNP.
