Adding new hard drive

I want to add a new hard drive to my system. Currently I am having 80GB hard drive and I am running Win XP Pro on my rig. The second drive will be of 40GB.

What changes would I require to set up the second drive and how to do that?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Fetch for the ribbon cable connected to the existing hard drive.
  2. Change the master/slave designation of the second hard drive.
  3. Connect the second hard drive to the second connector on the cable.
  4. Connect an available power cable to the hard drive.
  5. Insert the hard drive into an available drive bay and secure with screws.
