Default Re-install XP Home?

I am getting a new, faster HD, and I want to install Windows XP on it, and I plan on taking the old one out, putting XP on it, and if it goes without hitches, I will re-connect the old one, and take the new one out, restart, and delete the info (write 0's to the drive) and then I will be able to use the old one, and it will be empty.


Thanks a bunch!

Good plan of action.

It is wise to only have the windows HD in while installing windows, so it doesnt do anything like assign the windows drive D:\ or mess with boot.ini ect.
