What exactly do you mean? You want to slave it to your PC or what?
You can slave it or you can put the old HD into a usb caddie and also use it that way.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

as xpuser4real said, put your old hard drive, into the new computer, set the jumper to slave, and you can access it, however you will not be able to boot win xp from that drive.

follow the above advice if you just want to access files or use the disk for stprage, it will probably be formatted to fat32, so you micht want to format it to ntfs, if you intend to use it as extra disk space.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
