It really depends if it is internal or external, with an

external, you just plug it in via usb (if you're running XP), but

if you have an older version of Windows, you might have to install

drivers for a external. With an internal drive, you should just be

able to open up tha computer, connect the IDE cables, then you

should be ok. Go to the following site for help with an internal
