Yep that will work. Install XP its all up and running reattach the other drive. You may get access problems to the drive (but probably not) if so post back and we can talk you through them.

To format the drive after you have moved the files you want just right click on My Computer and choose Manage then Disk Manager and right click on the drive for options.
