also, you set your new HD to master and in the bios make sure it will check for the presence of another hard drive. it should automatically identify it.

sorry to bother you but to get alittle more detailed.The second hard drive that I want to add already has windows95 on it,so I assume that all that I have to do is just plug it into the controller.This is a small 540mb which I had on another computer which came installed on a system already setup.Do I have to have an installation disk to set this one up & will this be shown in the CMOS as a secondary hard drive?

this hard drive will automatically be set up for you already.  a setup disk is needed only if the hard drive is brand new.  hope this helps.
