You can connect your HDD as primary or secondary, doesn't make any difference, anyway as you said I also suggest you to put it as primary. When you insert the Windows XP installation disk and you boot from your CD-Rom it will shows you all the disk and partition asking where do you want to install it.
(To boot from CD you have to enter in the BIOS and change the device priority at boot, let me know if you know how to do that)
At this point from the installation of XP you select your HDD, select to format as NTFS (Better then FAT32) and you start the installation.
At the end of the installation Windows XP will modify your MBR (Master Boot Record) to add a dual boot including Win95.
Be carefull that at the end of the installation from XP you will be able to read files on the old HDD containing Win95 but not viceversa, because Win95 cannot read NTFS partitions.
