It is nearly impossible to boot from external hard drive. The main reason it that typically the computer need to have the OS loaded in order to support the external HD on the usb system. My recommendation would be to return the external, purchase and internal and have a professional migrate your drive to the new one.

You can download the software known as Active boot disk. With this you can create a bootable cd to run a chkdsk with the f and r command to fix and recover errors on disk. you can also explore your comp and copy files to an external disk. If after the system boots normally after chkdsk you might have a problem with your HDD get it replaced before it crashes again

I'm guessing maybe the IDE cables aren't connected properly, or the jumpers need to be set for cable select. Are you sure you configured the jumpers correctly for the master/slave setting for that particular drive?
Then again, when you enter the bios setup at boot does it recognize the second drive, but xp fails to boot, or is the bios also failing to recognize the 2nd drive? If that's the case, and the bios is set correctly, your drive may be at fault.
Check your bios setup,
If all that's in order, all I can offer is a couple links that might help you to sort it out.
regarding partitioning, http://www.theeldergeek.com/hard_drives_09.htm
And here's a link to a bios primer, that may shed some light on your situation.
I hope this steers you in the right direction. Let me know if you get it sorted out...
