screw it in, then plug it in, but before that, is it your only drive? If so set it to Master or Cable Select - on the back. If it is second make it Slave - also on back. Be sure that you plugged in the right cable - if it is Master it goes on the end of the IDE cable, if it is Slave then it goes on the middle plug on the IDE cable. Oh yeah don't forget to plug in the power. Never force it in with any computer part- if it doesn't fit you're in the wrong spot. lol.

If you're still in doubt, send us pics of your machine (open) and we'll try and draw arrows to the relevant places - that's how I got started :D
