Install the new drive to a spare connector and set the jumper on the back of the drive to slave
start the PC, enter the BIOS and select HDD detection, set the new drive to auto, dont change any existing settings, save and exit
carry on booting, open a DOS box in Windows and type fdisk choose option 5)change fixed disk (if you dont you'll destroy all the data on drive C:)create an extended partition then define logical drives within it, exit fdisk.
type for each new drive letter format X: (x is the drive letter.
Your CD and CDR letter asignments will change as Windows sets letters to HDD partitions first then CD's this means that any programs you ran from your CD before will now need re-installing since drive D: will no longer be the CD and files being sought there are now somewhere else(whatever the new letter of your CD)
Read this for a better and probably clearer insight.
good luck.
