Re: Second Drive
well, what you would have to do is simply get another cd drive, or dvd drive whatever you prefer, and just install it in the computer, hook it up and install any software or drivers that came with it. or you could take one out of your old computer and put it in the new one, and if you're running xp, it will automatically detect the drive and it will be usable. make sure on the second drive you set the jumper to slave.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
