yes, if there is a spare bay. Set it to slave. Plug in the power & other connecter.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

The jumpers on the back of the drives are probably set to CS (cable select) for compaqs. Verify that before installing it. Then connect the extra drive on the middle connection of the flat ribbon IDE cable to which your drive is connected.
