Default please advise

I want to install an 80 gig hard drive. Right now I have a
20 gig drive with 8g under it.

I'm wondering if I should only use new 80g drive or
better to put the new bigger drive under the 20g drive,
keep XP on 20g with 80g under it 2,1

I would have only OS run on 20g with all else on 80g?

TIA

thats good but seems like a waste to have 20g used on only the OS...put your OS on the 20gb one and tehn some programs like microsoft office...that way you wont have all that space wasted
