    How do I connect a second hard drive to my PC? All slots are already used
    in the M/Board.

    Can I use the IDE leads "middle connector" which is marked "slave" to
    connect the new hard drive to and if so, does this mean that I have to place
    the second hard drive jumpers to the slave setting also?

    If I am totally wrong can someone please advise the correct procedure.

    I have also wanted to know how to do this; however, I want to be able to
    connect up an old HD (W95-98) and access those old files that were not saved
    to some media before my son dismantled the whole rig. Being a complete (if
    the mouse clik works I can work) computer illiterate, I'd need at least step
    by step cliks;) Currently running windows ME.

    That is exactly what you have to do...don't forget the power connector
    too ;) Good luck.

    but some can be set as Single using no jumper at all, or you could just
    simply set both as Cable Select.

    Yes, jumper the drive as a slave, attach it to the connector marked slave,
    and make sure the first drive is jumpered as "Master"
