You'll need to install the drive as a slave drive which can be set by checking the jumper configuration of the drive. Presumably your using XP so when you power your system back up windows should detect the drive. If you then go into the management console you can then initialise and format the disk ready for use.

Now do you want this 120 GB drive to be your main boot drive as well?
