Read the lable on the hdd and it will give you the answer that you are looking for. You can also install it and let the bios automatically search and set the defaults for cylinders,heads, sectors....pio mode is set in the bios but it may not be suitable for your computer.Only your mobo can tell.

Use a 80wire IDE cable for starters. On the Samsung drive set the jumper to master witout slave. Boot to the bios and set the Drive 0 to auto detect. Now if that's a new Samsung 40 gigger drive you're gonna have to go to the Samsung website and get the little support program called>>> 48bit LBA support. It's needed on older systems to make newer drives work right. On win98 you need it but xp has it built in.

Old P2 systems are real finicky as to where the drive program jumper is.

Pick the model you have and set the jumper. Then go in the bios and set drive 0 to auto.

You're hitting that 32 gig barrier then. Got to have that other jumper in there. If there is a computer store near you might be posible to get another jumper. Check with the repair dept.
There may be a bios update for that problem. Might want to check the makers site and see if there is a bios work around. BUT and a BIG BUT, If it requires a FLASH of the bios think real hard about doing it. If you muck it up you'll wind up with a door prop and a spare hard drive.
I'd get the jumper myself...
EDIT> You can take the jumper out of the old drive. One size fits all.
