    I'm planning to install a second internal HD in the optical drive space to accompany my 80gb SSD.
    The basic process of physically installing the 2nd HD I understand.
    (planning on using this:

    But what I do not "FULLY" understand,
    is the process of "installing" the new HD when you boot the computer.
    - general and specifics

    This may seem like a "unnecessary/dumb" question,
    but the main reason why I'm asking this is because I'm installing this 2nd HD from the optical drive space.
    Is the process in installing an HD the same as if I were to install it in the original HD area?

    Thanks for all your responses
