    you'd be best off using the raptor for windows and your programs, thus enhancing the overall speed of your machine. unless the seagate model is on a PATA interface, you can partition it any way you want. on a PATA interface, you should split it into volumes, each into 125GB peices. no single volume larger than 137GB can exist on a PATA interface on account of addressing limitations.

    You might want to take a good look at the sticky on top and read it thoroughly also read the info displayed in the referred to site

    It might sound a bit dull, but as far as my knowledge goes, the logical thinking of this kind of setup stays the same whatever system you use.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here :rolleyes:
