There is no "Master" or "Slave" with SATA drives. Unlike EIDE devices which connect two to a cable and require the setting of a jumper to Master, Slave or cable select, SATA drives only connect one to a cable. So, IF your XP machine supports SATA drives, you can add that SATA as a secondary (not the same as Slave) drive, then access the files from there. If the XP machine does not support SATA, it will be necessary to buy and install some adapter - perhaps a PCI to SATA, or a USB to SATA adapter, or an enclosure.
