It's not done at the jumper level. The only jumper that should be relevant is that the IDE hard drive is probably already jumpered as Master.

What you have to do is go into the BIOS, find the BOOT menu, and in the Drives section, make sure that the new SATA drive comes before the old IDE drive.

Having two bootable drives in one system can be a pain in the neck.
