No, just put the XP CD in as the computer is turning on, and when it asks you to press any key to boot off of the cd, do so.

Probably your 80GB. Then use your 200GB for storing everything else. This will give you a little boost in performance.

They are, one is SATA, and the other is PATA.

Ya, just dont install any other programs, etc in that partition. Leave the rest of the room for patches/service packs.
