Just stick it in. Should't cause any problems. Stick it on a different
controller to your CDROM first of all. If you don't have one, stick it on a
different controller to your hard disk.
The only thing to watch out for is that you have the jumpers setup
properly. Modern disks have jumper settings for "master" and "slave"
written on them. Just remember than when you reboot, to try run
To see what the new disk is called. Then you can make the new partitions
to your heart's content. BTW - noticed RedHat 6.1 finally has an X-based
SVGA install routine. Very sweet.
