I already have a 30Gb hard drive running Windows 98 second edtn.
I bought a new 80Gb Seagate Barracuda ATA IV bare hard drive.
This is what i want.
I want to install this new hardrive and put Windows XP on it.
Thus, I want my earlier 30Gb to have win 98 and this 80 Gb hardrive to have win XP. And i when i boot up, i shud be able to choose with which harddrive (OS) i should be able to boot from. Also i would like an easy transfer of files from one hdrive to another.

How do i do all this?(how do i install this new hardrive in such a way that all abv works wihout messing up my old hard drive with win 98 on it)??

(both are IDE)
