If you haven't been able to get any O/S to boot on the P-II since the death of its old HD, I suggest that you blow any dust out of the system unit, and, if you can, check that the power supply is working properly.

And don't throw away that old HD :-)

BTW, all of my old WD hard disks had a 512MB jumper group.
