Just a quick one this.

While configuring my new sata drive I noticed my old one has the jumper that restricts it's speed to 1.5 gbs.

As this is going to remain my boot disc for now - can I remove the jumper or will that kill the data on the drive..

Grr - sry, getting late I meant 150mg or 300mg mode

You will be fine. All the jumper does is limit the speed to allow compatability with older SATA connections. The data itself will be unaffected.
