    If you are using an IDE hdd then you should have 3 ports on teh cable. one that connects to teh motherboard, one that makes a drive the master and one that makes it a slave. just format the 300G drive then when you restart your computer just move teh info over. also windows xp has a program on it that can make a backup of your computers software/files.
