If you've got a Maxtor drive go to the Maxtor sitehttp://www.maxtor.com
under ata utilities download MaxBlast4 and install it one your current drive. Just follow the instructions for making it your added drive. If you need to burn the new drive to zeros you can make a floppy to do that using the software. If your machine is post 1998 you may be able to set both drives to cable select and use an 80 pin atapi cable to choose master and slave, this generaly gives the best results.
The reason why I mention burning the drive to zeros, not ordinarily needed, is that some OEM drives have a "label" on them that can cause trouble, even when your computer says there is nothing on the drive.
You won't need drive overlay software on a drive of that size, just make sure the BIOS is set to auto, both settings, for that drive when you put it in. You can later change it to the exact settings for that particualr drive to speed up the booting.
Have any more questions, be sure to ask? One thing I can't help you with is how to make it dual boot with XP.
