I have winxp pro on a new pc and would like to transfer the 2nd HD on my old PC as it has all my files but if these are FAT 32 which I believe they are will the new PC be able to access the drive?? And how do I know what file system I have with win xp pro? Is there a simple way to check?

I suppose what I am saying is will it matter whetehr I have fat 32 on one HD and NTFS on the other? And aplogies if I sound confused because I am. I like this XP pc though, still going great after 5 months!!
