You could disconnect your current drive, connect the new drive as a "master" and perform a clean installation of XP Home, and all your porgrams. Then reconnect your old drive as a "slave", and transfer all your documents, pictures, contacts, etc. The XP File Transfer Wizard may be helpful.

why switch to xp home xp pro is much better. why not just connect your new drive as a slave or make your cd rom a slave and make your new drive the secondary master and use both. <_<
