nope.  Mine are jumpered as primary master/slave.  The linux being installed
on the slave disk.
I found the jumper settings for mine (when I installed a couple weeks ago)
by doing a search on the web for the product number on the disk.
But I imagine it's probably something like this..
I'll play with it more later.  Right now I just want a working version.
