About two weeks ago, my son and his friend were going to "surprise" me by installing another hard drive in my 486 while I was on vacation......Well imagine my surprise when I returned and my poor old comp was dead......

I'm sitting here with 4 hard drives not knowing which one came from my comp, a pile of HD jumpers (not knowing where they go) a Quantum 270mg, two conner 630mg, and a caviar 32500 2559.8mg.....AND their conecting cable setting here on my desk.....Will someone _PLEASE_ tell me how to reinstall this hardware....I've tried just pluging the connecting cable to one of the drives and to the motherboard, and running an "auto detect" of both the IDE, and the master hard drive, but to no avail. You may reply here or in mail.
