use the second drive as your documents folder. it's is the first tip

but you can run xp on it, even if it was set to slave. just change your boot drive in the bios or set that drive to active in windows (this automatically hides the first drive). you could also do it in a dual boot system.

right click my computer
click manage
click disk management
right click the 2nd hard drive>INITIALIZE
then quick format it

YOU DO NOT INSTALL WIN XP ON THE SLAVE HARD DRIVE
