    Well wooooooo hooooooo I am now at last finally on my new supa dupa tower.

    Everything is working extremely well, I am currently using my new sata harddrive as my main harddrive.

    I have partitioned it off, (as I have with all of my harddrives).

    Which leads me into my question (don't panic I'm getting there) ....... I have also installed my two "old" harddrives (IDE). And yes they are being recognised and working.

    Now for the question ...... On my "old" IDE harddrive I used to have the operating system installed on it.

    How do I delete this as a Primary partition since it is no longer needed as such, and turn into just another logical partion? To store all my stuff on?

    Use any partitioning utility to delete the partition(s) from the drive and recreate them as extended-logical. You lose all the data of course.
