The information about cylinders and heads relates to the physical properties of the hard drive and is not relevant to your problem. There should be, on a sticker somewhere on the drive near the bay where the jumpers go in (which is between the IDE cable and the power lead ...) - there should be a block diagram which represents the pins of the jumper connector. (maybe 9 pins or so). Now, as you know a jumper covers 2 pins - on that diagram there will be "blacked out" areas which represent a jumper in that position, and next to it is will say something like "MA", "SL" or "CS" - you need to put the jumper in so that your configuration looks like the "SL" configuration on the diagram.

i am gonna throw the bloody thing out of the window in a minute , it is doing my head in, i have now altered the jumpers and am getting the message once again, operating sytem not found, wtf is going on,

i only want the drive as a place to stroe stuff not as the main drive, and it seems to be loading up as the main drive even after i set the jumpers to slave, why is this doing it? is it time i took it to someone who knows what they are doing? but thats gonna cost me

You sure you have the original drive as master? And you've checked your BIOS is set to boot from Primary Master ...
