    You really want to have your operating system on the primary master hdd. If you have just installed a new hdd then it will almost certainly not be on that. You could use a utility to do a full copy of your os to the new hdd, then change things about to make it the primary master. I believe that Norton Ghost will do that for you, a sig is available here

    if you want to download it.

    If you want some advice however. I personally would make the clean new hdd the primary master, then re install the os, the drivers and any software you use. That way you will have a nice clean fast system. You can then transfer any data from the old hdd.

    Given that you have installed a new hdd I assume you know how to do all of this. If not then just pop back and ask, someone will help.

    Good Luck.

    Set your new hdd as a master, but putting the jumpers on the correct place at the back of the drive. Then put it on the primary ide channel.

    Boot up and go into the BIOS. Normally the delete key, though not for compaq.

    Tell the BIOS to Autodetect IDE. That way it will find the new hdd when you reboot.

    Probably a good idea to set the boot sequence as floppy - CD - hdd while you are there.

    Reboot the computer with a bootable disk. If you have a bootable windows disk then just put that in the CD. When you start the computer it will boot from there and install the os to your new hdd.

    Otherwise boot from a recovery floppy. Select with CD support. When started go to CD and install your os.

    It almost certainly wasn't recognising the hdd because you hadn't told it to look. It's always a good idea to have your BIOS set to autodetect. That way you can change hdd, cd etc without having to bother about it.

    Perhaps a Step x Step installation guide might help. ~Moving to Hardware~ in regards to harddrive installation help.

    You should know precisely your max upload speed in kilobits. For example it may be 128 or 256 kilobits, or even higher. Then enter the number in Kazaa Lite Options - Advanced - Max. (upload) bandwidth in kilobits.
