Western Digital jumper configuration

I am going to be changing the configuration on an XP machine and need to know where to put the jumper on the hard drive if there is going to be a DVD drive added as a slave to the same cable??
It is a Western Digital 40GB drive and is new.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I agree, cable select is the way to go. My 60 gig WD has a lable on top and cable select is jumper 1 and 2, closest to the power connector.
