If you are both running Windows XP, I am not sure that you can legally do it because of the license agreement.But you could just add your sisters HD to yours (making it the slave) and then copy over anything you want and vice/versa. Unless you are wanting the bigger hard drive. As far as I know Dell are happy for you to add a second HD, in fact for my Dell they explain how to do it in the handbook, and I added the HD from my old computer.

Another thought, why not email Dell support and put the question?
