That would make your PC a Deskpro 2000. I haven't opened mine for over a
year now (they are in the shed now gathering dust) so this is all from
The PII supports Ultra ATA, so the drive size shouldn't be a problem.
You should also use an 80 wire cable. There is a rompaq available for
the dp2000 to allow them to recognize drives larger than 8gb here
I think for mounting the drive as a second hdd you will have to get
mounting brackets to mount it in a 5.25" inch bay (they only room to
mount 1xfdd and 1xhdd in the 3.5" bay)
