    Ok 40 GB IBM drive thats crapping out (has the OS etc).

    80GB WD HDD thats running fine, but is damn near full. I just came across a 160GB EXTERNAL drive. If I just want to get the OS on the 80GB, slave the external( if thats the proper term for a usb drive), do I just install windows on the 80GB drive first? Im getting stop errors all the time, and I cant update windows because of my key :mamoru:

    if you want all the stuff from the 80 gig, hook up the external and transfer anything you want to keep, then install windows on the 80gig...
