I have intel D1011GGC pentium4 mb with 1.5GB RAM and 80gB hard disc. Can i increase my hard disc capacity with 250Gb? what i have to do

You can add it in as the main harddrive or you could add it in as a second harddrive. The instructions should come with the harddrive but basically you go into bios and set it up to autodetect it...

However perhaps you'd consider another option. As the machine must be several years old why not get an external harddrive that way if/when you get a new machine you can use it with the new one?
Use it for saving all your photos, music, saved files etc as you wish and keep just xp and basic programs on the 80 gig drive you have now? :)

Is it possible to take my IDE harddrive from my old dell dimension 8100 running 'XP' and install it as a second harddrive in my dell studio 8100 studio xps with W7, then boot "XP" from harddrive...

If your motherboard in your new machine supports IDE and you set the jumper on the HDD to slave then I dont see any reason why you wouldnt be able to use it as a second drive

What size processor does dell dimension 8200 have, i want to install 320 mb hard drive

You can go to website, choose Drivers & Downloads, enter your computer's service tag (which can be found on a sticker attached to your machine's case) and then from the list of options on the left choose System Configuration (ignoring the further options to refine search in the center of the page).

It will show you the system components as shipped from the factory.

A 320MB harddisk is prehistoric, I beleive you mean 320GB. It has to be established what type of harddrive you have (with ATA or SATA interface) and purchase an appropriate type. If you want to add it as a second disk, it'll be simpler, if you want to replace the existing one, you'll need to either copy the existing contents to the new drive, or install the system and all the applications on the new drive from scratch. Both operations require some more advanced computer skills.

I want to install a seond hard drive in computer

can you please open up the CPU and check one thing? Is there any Free port in this cable? One end will be connected to the motherboard and two others to (1)CD/DVD rom and (2) Hard drive.

If there is free, surely you can add one. Please then look for a place where you can place your (ATA not the sata one) harddrive.

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200

(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..

Adding mor memory

A laptop can only have a single internal harddrive but you can replace your current drive with a larger one. The cost will depend on the size of the drive... goto the dell site and get your drive specs then goto a hardrive manufacturer site like Maxtor and see what size drives are avialble with the same specs ... you will have to backup and transfere all your files and also reinstall all of your applications and OS...
