Okay, this is what you do, I don't really think that Win 98 supports dual HDDs, but I think I can help.

If you have a IDE Dual Cable (plug into the Motherboard and have two connectors attached), Do you see the mini plug by the connector on the HDDs? (Usually white or different color) on the Original HDD, put the miniplug to "Master" and the second (added) HDD to "Slave" or you may be able to use the "Select" on both.

What I do recommend though is going ahead and burning all of your precious data to CDs and buying a newer HDD.

Instead of 4 Gigs, get something around 80 Gigs.

If you give me the motherboard specifications, you may be able to update your RAM to 128-256 MB

Can windows xp be installed on a etower 333 cs


In short. NO
this pc has a maximum memory capacity of 256mb.
With the maximum memory installed and a bigger hard drive it would run with windows xp, but would be very slow, but with 2nd user pc so cheap you could buy a cheap tower/screen/kb and mouse very cheap.
check ebay
