"Hard disk space continues to expand affordably. As the average computer can
use up to three hard disks in addition to a CD drive, it's easy enough to go out
and buy a new drive to add extra storage space to your system. In this Beginners
Guide, we'll cover all the necessary steps for installing and preparing a second
hard disk drive on both Win9x/ME and Win2K/XP systems, as well as setting up the
hard drive for installation on a brand new computer with no operating system. As
both IDE and Serial ATA hard drives are used in modern PCs, we'll also
investigate the differences between these two types of hard disk."
