so i have a dual boot system with win xp and ubuntu; i want to add a second older ide (pata) drive that has win xp (from my old computer).

the thing is my new computer has its sata drive on the secondary slave IDE channel.

so what is the best way to add my old drive? seems i would need to reinstall win xp and ubuntu on the sata drive connected as master not as slave?

most confusing any help appreciated
