XPS 400 Hard Drive Upgrade

Hey all,

The 80g Hard Drive in my XPS400 just isn't cutting it anymore.  I would like to pick up a 500g (or larger if possible) drive and totally get rid of my old one.  My question is, can I just toss the new drive in the first SATA port and reinstall Windows XP MCE off the "Reinstallation DVD" I recently requested/recieved from Dell?  If not, how do I go about adding the new drive and using it as the main drive?

Its been years since I've built my own computer and my 400 still runs great and I'd rather not ruin that, so any tips you guys can give would be appreciated.

 

Thanks
