Getting hard disks working for backup-- some problems

I am far enough along with my install of Fedora to
want to do disk to disk backup. It's the simplest kind
and it's what I'm used from using Norton ghost.

I downloaded the g4l program (Ghost For Linux)
and tried to re-jumper my hard drive from an 'only'
jumperless setting used on this test disk to 'master'.

I got an error from the setup routine on the computer
that wouldn't recognize the drive.

Then I removed the jumper to run the drive as
and only and it worked ok.

For grins I put my drive to be used as a backup which
is still set as 'slave' in it's drive tray and that loaded
the boot routine as well. This was a big surprise, though
it would not be unusual in Windows.

So how can I straighten this out?

[I have cross-posted this question at Fedora]
