Install 2nd drive for Slackware?

I'm running Windows 2000 Pro, with a 40gb hard drive formattted to NTFS, what is the best solution to installing slackware? I want to dual boot. I also have a 2gb hard drive that I can stick in, if thats an option. Your help is very much appreciated.

You'll run out of room on the 2Gig before you even finish installing, so the best idea would be to use at least a good 6-8Gigs minimum from the 40 to install Slack on.
