It's unfortunate that the minute you walk out the door with your new iBook, you must start thinking of ways to protect it from theft. Let's face it: the iBook, with its rich blue or orange skin, is attractive not only to you but also to those who'd like to make your iBook their own.

Information without guarantee -

The drives must be configured as master or cable select. Most of the drives have no physical jumper, this setting has to be done by firmware.
You will find firmware and utilities also in special forums. Here, for example, one for Toshiba drives.
