Jonesie, you're mistaken... When installing XP, the user has the option to either format the drive as FAT32 or NTFS. It does NOT have to be in NTFS. Gohand mentioned nothing about his current XP partition as being NTFS. If it was, it would not matter as you can still read data on a FAT32 partition from a NTFS partition. (It does not work the other way around however).
Gohand, your posting is confusing... first you say that "...windows was able to recognize it like plug and play and installed it and displays ready to use"... then you say "... but i don't see it in my computer." Where in Windows did you look? If the Device Manager reports the fujitsu drive then you've set the jumpers correctly. If not, then mostly likely the jumpers are off.
I would first make sure that your original HDD w/ XP is set as "Master" and not as CS - Cable Select. This can cause a conflict on some MBs if you don't use a consistent method, i.e. master/slave or CS.
Also, each EIDE channel can have upto 2 devices. If you have a CD-ROM or CD-RW drive i would recommend setting that as "slave" on your IDE channel #1.
Install the Fujitsu drive as Master/slave on IDE channle #2.
