3.5" HDD in a USB Caddy

I've a couple of 3.5" HDD (SATA and IDE) taken from an old Desktop and a Samsung PVR. I also have suitable external USB enclosures. The question is which Jumper settings to use (or leave unused) when in a USB enclosure. One HDD (WD) has the Boot flag set (SATA) and the other Seagate (IDE) hasn't. Both are 200-300 GB sized. Any advice appreciated.

External IDE drive jumper position should be set as master.
