If i put my Windows Disk in can i tell it which Drive to install to? I have a second drive which is new and bigger. I plan to put XP pro on that one and use the smaller one for the kids' games?

Don't know about XP but all other Windows installation disks will only install to C: drive.

Why not download a copy of xxcopy from click here and install the new drive as a slave and then xxcopy everything over. Once that is done make the new drive the master and the other drive the slave and reboot. The smaller drive can then be re-formatted and the kid's games installed on it.

Yes you can install XP on the new drive, I have with no problems. You will be asked which drive do you want to install XP on.
