    I currently have a 20Gig hard drive with windows XP on it, now monday ill probably buy a hard Drive of 80Gig.

    My plan is this:
    -I set the 80 gig new hard drive as Master and my current 20 gig to Slave
    -When I open the computer for the first time, I put my Win XP CD
    -My PC will detect the CD
    -I delete my 20 gig partition and I install my Win XP on the 80 Gig which I split it in 2, which means 2 X 40
    -I reboot the PC and it will go on Win XP

    Now my question is, is my plan good or is there something I forgot before installing my new hard drive.
