A jumper consists of a pair of pins and a connector which
fits over the pins. When the connector is in place it estab-
lishes an electronic link between the pins, which enables
the function being controlled by the jumper. If the
connector is removed, the electronic link is broken and the
function is disabled.
Jumpers are used to set the
CD- ROM reader mode on the IDE

is MASTER for fitting to enhanced
IDE controllers supporting two
ports, one for hard disk and one for
DVD-ROM. If you prefer to con-
nect the DVD-ROM reader to the
same port as your harddisk, (as a
secondary device) you have to
change jumper setting to SLAVE
