    Hello fellow HTF'ers-- I'm hoping a few of you PC experts can lend a little advice on a new hard drive install I did last night. I'm not a PC novice by any means but this is the first time I've ever had to replace a HD and reinstall an OS. My system is 3 years old, HP Pavilion 8575C, PIII 550...
