That's going to be a nice setup. I don't see any hardware incompatabilities, but I would advise formatting the data drive NTFS w/ 32k clusters. I have a WD 100GB drive for data & when I formatted it the first time it defaulted to 4K clusters & I got 9073 EVERY TIME even with the biggest buffer. Very frustrating, as I had just built the system from total race car parts (Athlon XP 2100+, PC2700 memory, blah blah...) & it ran anything else almost instantaneously. Just watch it w/ PT & big drives is all I'm sayin'. Best of luck.

Are you going XP or 98? You can't go NTFS in 98. If you go NTFS don't partition. You'll only limit the inherent advantages of this file structure. Otherwise, disable everything in the bios, like parallel, serial, and usb ports as well as onboard audio and midi before you install windows.

i'm going to be running WinXP home eddition. so should i just format both hard drives NTFS and not partition either of them, or should i format the 20 gig drive i'm using for my os and programs fat32 and partition it and not the 80 gig i'll be doing all my audio on (leave it NTFS).
