I want to change hard drive

OK I have a current installation of RH8 on my first HDD. I want to make my new HDD contain the rh installation and then use my first HDD as a place to back up files.

If i remove the first hdd and then install the new hdd can i then plug the first hdd back in and be able to access the files easily?

Yes - just make sure you change the jumper settings so that one is master and one is slave.
