Would I have any problems installing my current slave drive, (which is on xp) as a slave drive to a new computer i'm about to get that has win7?
I'm wanting to retain all my old files, and keep using it as a slave drive on the new rig.
You would not have any issues doing this. As long as there is no programs installed to that drive that you would want to continue to work.
When I replaced my computer I kept the hard disk from XP and put it in an external USB case and used it to copy my documents across including all my photos, documents and itunes music.

Once I copied all my files that I wanted across I simply formatted the drive and it's now used for making backups!
