Default Putting a WD2500JB IDE on my XP PC

My PC has both SATA and IDE (EIDE?) drives. One IDE drive is removable.
I decided to beef up the capacity of my PC, so bought a new WD2500JB
IDE(?) for the removable drive slot. Something is not working right.

I have a SATA WD3200AAJS-01 HD set up for my C: drive, NTFS, master,
~300GB. Further, there's an IDE WD800BB-75 HD set as a master,
NTFS/FAT32. The FAT32 partition is ~280MB for the F: drive, and ~75GB
for the NTFS E: drive. Apparently, the D: drive is for a removable HD.
For that I'd like to use the 250GB WD2500JB HD.

Here's my problem. It appears I have the jumper set up is incorrect on
the WD2500JB. When I use it, I do not see the E: and F: drives. The
jumper instructions on the top of the HD provide some guidance. To
start, I used the 7-8 pins as a jumper. That's where the jumper was when
I opened the box. What is correct in my case?

1-2 Select
3-4 Slave
5-6 Master or Slave
7-8 Single or Master
9-10 None
