^+1 for starters. Does it show up in my computer?
After you have done that you can uninstall some of the programs and reinstall them on the spinpoint, aka hdd. During installation of the programs it asks you where you want to install the programs, default is C -program files usually, so during installation, pick which ever drive letter pertains to your hdd. Depending on when you installed it, plugged the hdd in, and how many cd/dvd drives you have installed, it could be D, E, F or G ect... Find it, put a folder in it called something like "stuff" or "paint" or even program files 2 if you like, then, during installation choose that location, ie G - stuff or G - paint and the program will be installed there. If a shortcut isn't automatically put on your desktop you can open the folder and right click on the .exe file and select send to desktop as shortcut. Shortcuts can be put on the desktop and run normally, they are only 1kb in size.
