    Yes you can but be sure to set it as a slave to the other hard drive and XP will work on/with both FAT32 and NTFS. ;)

    I prefer to do files by 100Mbps network though but a USB cable can connect both (if both equiped with USB ports) to substitute for a network connection and is much less hassle than swapping drives around plus maybe coming across a hardware conflict when the other drive is install with the probability of file corruption. :thumb:
