Default Hard Drive Help

This is a picture of my Dell 733r CPU. Is the hard drive located at 1 or 2? I am no good when it comes down to the location of components. What I want to do is take the hard drive out and hook it up to my new Dell 8400 so I can copy important programs and files to the new computer. Do I need anything special tools to remove the H-drive? Thanks for your help in adavance! CP

If you want to exchange Data from one computer to another hook them up in a Network, or simple go online with them and use a messenger service and upload and download the data.
