Replace old HDD for install
I have an old Dell PC with 2 HDDs (40GB and 80GB) running Windows 2000. I want to turn this into a linux machine basically for file sharing, but also for music and installing Oracle/Sybase. What I would like to do is remove the existing HDDs and replce them with two much larger HDDs maybe 300GB a piece, however my mobo does not support disks that large and there is no update for the board. From what I read I need to purchase a controller card. I have the latest version of SUSE linux, I have not purchased the card, but I will soon. So my questions are once I install the card and hookup the disks will I be able to do an installation? Will the disks be seen for the install? Do I need to just change one disk and keep one of the older ones? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
