New Hard drive & transfer data

I have one 60 g HD running Windows 2000 & a new 100 g HD. My question is if I install 2000 on the 100 g HD and reconnect the 60 G HD from the motherboard, which HD will windows boot from? I need it to boot from the 100 G drive so I can transfer the data from the 60 g to the 100 g. The 60 g will become the red hat OS. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can set your drives up as follows:

100GB drive - set jumpers for "Master"
60GB drive - set jumpers for "Slave"

That should make the 100GB drive "C:".
