    How do I install a second hard drive please. I'm using windows XP and
    have my first HD on one IDE lead as master, there is a spare SLAVE
    connection mid way along this lead, so can I simply connect my second hard
    drive to this making sure the jumper on the new drive is set at SLAVE. If
    so, do I have to format and partition the new drive or is there something
    in XP that does this for you.
