yeah, thanks guys, crazy beans your idea is great, except for the fact that if I go your way, I'll be installed XP twice and tranfering over 60gb of files twice. But using the PATA 2gb, I will be installing XP twice still, but only transfering the files once. Thanks anyways!
But if the PATA simply crashes or dies since its so old, I'm gonna go with your method. Or if it simply takes too long to load
Do you guys recommend I partition my 160gb hard drive to 100, and 60?
And I was also thinking of paritioning my 80GB one to 10 and 70. Then I would install XP on both partitions, and use the 70 gb as my main, and the 10gb partition with XP on it, kinda like my safemode so that I can access my computer if anything goes wrong on my main 70GB partition. Is this a useless idea or not?
