We have just bought a new P4 540 as a replacement for our old P2 300mhz.
The P2 is dead, unbootable. The files can be seen by a boot floppy disk.

Is it possible to plug in the old HD's into our new P4 computer?
They are IDE ATA 33....

What are my options?

Yes, if you have open spots on your IDE cable you can simply plug it in and set the jumper accordingly. Also if you don't have room you can purchase a pci ide controller and use that.

If you need the PCI Ide Controller card I recommend this:

Otherwise you could even unplug your CD-ROM(s) and use that cable temporarily and hook your old HD's to it in order to copy your info over to the new PC
