permanently change my boot drive?

Specs: Windows XP
I have a 40GB bootable hard drive, a 500GB and a 2TB in my computer. I want to take out my 40 GB drive, and make my 500GB drive the boot drive. I'd then like to add another 2 TB drive to my computer. Is this possible without the operating system disks?

You can use this program to take an image of your 40gb drive and restore it to your 500gb drive. Here are instructions:

As above there are ways to image your current disk. Most OEM disk makers offer a program to transfer the OS.

You should also consider exactly what may be on that disk too. If you have the OEM media stored on hidden partitions you may need to be extra cautious.

If you don't have any media to replace the software you need to make plans for disaster.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

I'm guessing the 40GB HDD is IDE/PATA while the others are SATA?
