  1. Setting up new hard drive or....

    I have a 30 GB hard drive that has Windows millennium on C: and XP on D:

    I'm running out of space. Is there a way to delete Windows millennium?

    If not, can I setup a new harddrive using another computer and then install it into my regular computer when I get it "tweaked" the way I like it?

    The second computer is a emachine running a Celeron processor if that makes a difference.

    If you don't need anything from ME anymore, you can delete the "Windows" directory on the C-drive without any problems (when you are in XP). Unless you have programs that still run fom inside "Program Files" on the C-drive, you can delete that as well.
    In the root on the C-drive, leave the files BOOT.INI, CMDLDR (if present), NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM alone, they are needed to start XP. Everything else can go.
