after downloading install it to your system.

Vista has a big problem recognizing usb drives - and no one has one right way to fix this yet. The first thing you should try is installing this update from microsoft that combines all USB hotfixes into one download. (it's update 941600). Scroll down to "More Information" and download the version of the fix that applies to your vista installation.
If that still doesn't work, try following the instructions here, and deleting your .inf files.

The only way to use this externally would be to get an ide/sata to usb adapter, like this:
As for using it internally, you would connect it with the same ribbon cable that is connected to your current hard drive. Then the new drive you would have to set to slave, there will be a jumper on the end of the drive where you plug it in. It should tell you where to move the jumper to to set it as slave.
