Hi Everybody, just a small question. My Daughter has a 3.5GB hdd, and I want to add a 10GB hdd, question is do I have to format the new drive and do I have to install 98se on it as well TIA Bill

format,yes.but you dont install anything.it will come up as a new drive,you just use it like the space on your other drive.(an extension)make sure you put jumper to slave.

Take a look here about how to install a second hard drive click here

What are the rotational speeds of the drives? I'd use the faster one for the OS.

Let us know how you get on...

you could be very clever and switch your 98 to big drive,then format the small drive as slave.(big drive might be faster.so it would be sensible to put os on it)
