Can a Harddrive 100 and a 133 co-exist as master/slave? I am planning to buy a 160GB HD, Ghost the image into the new harddrive, than re-format and use the other one for archiving as E:

thank you

Yes they can co-exist. No special measures to take.
If the old drive is more than 5 years old, you might also back up important stuff to CD/DVD

Be sure to use the newer ribbon cable that comes with the new unit instead of the old one
