Setting Up Kids Comp

Recommended Posts

I have succesfully set up my kids comp and added it to my home network.

However, after installing all of the updates for XP the 6.2 Gig HD is now 60% full, I have a 4.3 Gig HD laying around that I could add as a slave.

My question is, in adding the 2nd HD will my comp recognixe this as a new configuration forcing me to completely reinstall the op sys, and more importantly, will the system utilise the 2nd hard drive effectively?

Thanks

ps the setup is 1 Gig AMD
Kilobyte mobo
Gforce 2 400 mmx
384 pc 2100 ddr
6.2 Gig HD (also 4.3 Gig HD)
win xp home

XP recognizes everything you put in and loads the drivers for it.
Like mazakman said just set the jumper to slave ;)

be careful when installing new stuff on XP, when i installed my buddys new second HD on his comp it said the system tag or something was changed and he needed to re register his machine. He was on the phone for like 6 hours waiting for Microcrap to give him a new key cause the old one was invalid now...
