Default Windows 98 hard drive moved to XP

I'm running Windows 98, 1st edition, with 2 hard drives, the 2nd holding only MP3's. Can I add this drive to a new machine running Windows XP without trouble? Thanks.

There shouldn't be a problem.

You definitely can. You should run defrag on the windows 98 drive to ensure optimum performance.
