    i think i may have to reinstall windows xp again, as i keep getting error messages saying that windows installer service could not be accessed..i have a samsung 250gb sata hard drive & got an old western digital caviar 12100 2.1gb ata hard drive. can anyone tell me if i need to set this to master or slave? i want to transfer some programs & important documents to the 2.1gb hdd, that way the reinstall wont be so painful. the reason im not sure is because the samsung is sata & didnt need to set it to master or slave. THANKS
