noorul; is it possible to install 40 along with 4? enough space for both in bays? if yes then do so then use 40 as main hdd & 4 as swap or storage.
ghost copy 4 to 40 to save data.

Yes, but currectly I am running my OS on 4GB, will the lilo boot loader will work properly in 40Gb after ghost? do I need to reload lilo? if yes, please guide me the commands please.

Will the linux refer to 4gb for system files after ghost?

Regards
Noorul

noorul; take time to peruse this (with thouroghness) http://tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX section 4.1.4 Installation & expand it
completely (there are many pages) with detail information. those first sections crucial in acquiring knowledge on linux intricacies. I have learned with that information among others. be patient, take time, read any & all
that you can comprehend, try not to go to far in advance, too much to do & lots of pitfalls. just be careful, methodical,slowly u will get there as most of
us did!
