Default transfer data

OK, so I have my old hard drive that I want to turn into an external. However, it has windows XP on it and my new comp has windows vista... is there anyway I can make it an external? like remove the OS without losing all my music and stuff?

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420
EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
G.SKILL 2GB DDR2 800 (2x1GB)
Seagate Barracuda 320 GB
Rosewill 550 Watt
