Is it a name brand system and if so what brand, make and model?

Page 1-8 shows you the location of the drive bays.
Wat you would need to do is to make sure one drive is set for master and the other for slave since they would be connected together on one ribbon from the motherboard.
That is accomplished by the jumpers on the back of the hard drives.
There is other steps involved but before getting that far into it I want to make sure this is something you want to continue with as it does mean you have to open the case up.
Do you have a table or something you can lay the system on while working on it and is well lighted up so you can see?
Next after opening the case up you need to verify the ribbon that goes from the motherboard to your hard drive has a empty connection on it to accept the new hard drive.
Thirdly you need to make sure you are purchasing the correct format drive as in a IDE connection.
