mistral7 is on a distinguished road

PC Moving XP os to another HDD, same machine - help please

Consequent to lots of shuffling around of drives - crashes, disks fatalities, etc, I want to move my XP sp3 os to a seprate drive in the same machine - apart from the fact that the present os is located on a 5 year old drive, I want to be able to set up a dual boot - XP and Ubuntu. To do this I need to use a commom hard drive (so it seems) and there is not enough room on the old drive.

Obvious is to reformat, etc, but..the pain of putting everything back...

Hope there is someone out there with a clever solution that a simple person like myself can follow
