u can install upto 2 hdd in one IDE channel,If u have already installed u'r 40gb one as primary master then install the second harddisk as primary slave.to make the second harddiks to work as slave,just remove the jumper and leave it as it is and install it on the primary IDE channel.

Is there any operating system in 2nd hard disk.
if there is nt system os i.e win 2000 onwards then u can right click MY COMPUTER then choose MANAGE then STORAGE then DISK MANAGEMENT right click the drive and FORMAT it.

There is 2nd easiest way to use software like PARTITION MAGIC .

If u r using Fat 32 file system then use bootable floopy to boot .It will show A:\ then type format c:
I think these ways are just enough.
