Default Making a Seagate HD a slave

Hi, I have a Seagate Medalist 9 gig SCSI HD model ST39140W. I don't see it saying anywhere on the hard drive how to make it a slave. I found info on it on Seagates website, its also doesn't say anything, or at leat that I understand. If anyone could take a look at this hard drive and see if the can make any sense of it it would be greatly appricated. Thanks, Kyle.

Well, no one else seems to want to answer and I have no knowledge of scsi, but here goes. Why would you want to deal with a 9 gig hdd? If you do, just attach it to the IDE 0 ribbon and boot XP. It should recognize it and install it.

Yeah, just plug it in and have fun. Sounds like you are just playing anyway.

Thanks for the help. Would you happen to know which SCSI ID you would set it to to make it a slave?
