Thank you for your reply! Yes the new computer will have an IDE controller
one way or the other. If there isn't one installed I have already checked on
a PCI card that will give me 4 IDE channels for the 2 hard drives and
possibly even moving a DVD RW.
I am wondering what I should do with permissions, taking ownership, and
things of that nature to prep the drives for the move 1) to a new machine and
2) to a different OS. They are both NTFS drives. One is data only and the
other is the boot / OS drive.
Thank you for your reply!
