Just install the old HDD as a slave drive. Then you will be able to access them probably as a "D" drive. Of course, you could then copy your data off the drive and then reformat it an use it just for data.
As long as you do not try and run any programs from the old drive, just copy data from it then you will not have a problem! Once you are running XP on your new drive you cannot run anything from the old drive because it will be expecting to run in Win98.
