you need an IDE drive (not SATA) and just swap over with your old 5gb one ensuring the switch on the back is set to SL (slave).

I don't think the 5GB one is a backup drive. I think its just another partition tbh. I'm guessing there's only one HDD physically in the PC.


Sounds about right. ie one 40GB drive.
