I removed a disk drive from a Win95 System. It had been installed as a slave,D drive. worked fine.
I want to install this same drive as a slave in another system. Do all I have to do is install rthe drive and change the bios on the system to show a D drive as a slave to C ?
The 2nd system also runs Win 95 (and NT...dual boot system).

basically, you move the harddisk to the new computer and then configure it as any other drive you want as long as it is not the C drive, unless of course it is a bootable drive. it doesn't necesarrily need to be a slave drive. it could also be a secondary master if need be.

steps to be taken
1. remove from old computer and update bios for lack of drive d
2. install new drive into another system. if bootable, then make it C drive in bios, and remember to change the jumper pin settings on the hdd to make it master.
3. otherwise just leave it as slave and it could be primary slave or secondary slave. of course you have to update the bios
