Default Using an old hard drive

I have a Compaq 5003US hard drive which I could use the extra space from/the old information. I am currently using a Dell Dimension 4600i. Anyway to hook it up externally or what?

Thanks!

yeah you can get an external enclosure that attaches to either usb or a firewire one which you put the hard drive in then it acts as an external drive ,
If you want some links just tell me where you are and i can give you some
