Default Re: Question about installing a new Hard Drive

correct orientation: PCB faces downward
Jumper: only if it is an IDE drive (you don't say but the latest 320GB drives are SATA so I assume you talking about one)

Otherwise pretty much the same, they generate heat so a decent gap between the top of the drive and whatever is above it is preferable.
