master = sets drive as master (use this if you also have a slave drive on the same channel)
drive only = sets drive as master (use this if there isn't another drive on the same channel)
slave = sets drive as slave (use only when another drive is attached to the same channel as a master)

WD drives are unique in they have 2 settings for naster (master & drive only) but it is important you set it right or it will drive (heh heh) you up a wall

also don't use cable select unless your computer mentions that you need to use it in the manual (very rare!)

and an 8gig drive should support SOME flavor of UDMA, at least UDMA/33
