Could you be a little more specific than "but it says that its not compatible with windows xp."...what says what is not compatible? Exactly what message(s) do you see on your screen?

Gnaty, you need to set the jumpers on the drives to what you want them to be. So set the jumper on the 110GB drive to Master and the 10GB drive to Slave. Also, make sure that the 110GB drive is on the primary channel. There are two IDE slots (usually) on your motherboard...one lableled PRIMARY and the other one labled SECONDARY. Simple as that.

If you want to find out how to set these jumpers, tell us the make and model of your drives. IE: Seagate, ST3120022A (HERE)

I usually just put my jumpers in the "cable select" position. If you're using ATA133 cables make sure the blue connector is connected to the motherboard, and the one in the middle of the cable is connected to whatever you want to make the slave. The one all the way at the end (that isn't blue) goes to the master.
