Those are nice little snappy drives. Why not try the other drive as a slave if the machine can fit it? Is this being used in a desktop or laptop? More actually depends on the machine than the old hard drive. I just put an 80gb drive in a machine that started with a 4gb drive and it worked right off the bat, even though it's an older machine. And it's being used as a slave.
