Are the CD's the same for each one? It matters if they're OEM, Upgrade, Retail - and the Service Pack level must also be the same.
Essentially what you'll have to do is wipe the F: drive clean to remove your OS from it (and maybe a little editing of the boot.ini file). That will remove your XP from her drives.
Then you'll have to figger out how to get her XP to the new larger drive. There's many different methods of doing this - but here's my favorite: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/moving_xp.html
You may have to repair the wife's XP installation before you can do this. If so, let us know and we can troubleshoot that.
