If what you want is to do a new install on your 4.3, and copy over your documents etc from the 1.6, set the 4.3 as master, the 1.6 as slave on the same ide cable. Detect them in the bios. Now use a bootable floppy with fdisk, format and cdrom drivers on it to create a partition on your 4.3, format it, and install windows. Your 1.6 drive will appear in windows as drive d, so you can copy the files you want over.
