Thanks acklan. Good info. Please recall, I know very little about all this. Seriously, I don't. How do I learn how to do this stuff? How to partition this drive. How to make a hidden partition. How to put XP in the hidden partition. Is there a guide for this? Several perhaps.
What's the best way to get smart as fast as possible. I am educable and willing, however, I wonder if I need to take this to someone experienced/knowledgable/skilled to do it for me. Problem is, I live ~50 miles from town/civilization/really smart geeks, and I don't get in there all that often. Even in town, I think most of the computer folks are just broken down cowboys who probably don't know all that much, just trying to make a living saying they do.
So anyway, should I change page file size or any other settings now that I have this external HD? And do I lose what's on the drive when I partition it? I'm assuming I can move external HD data to the internal, partition the external, move the data back to external, wherever I want it to go. Is that right?
Thanks for the help..... and patience.
