Assuming they are IDE drives (connected by those wide, flat cables) you need to open the case and swap them round physically since the master HDD needs to be at the end of the cable whereas the slave is attached to the connector in the middle.

You also need to change the jumpers on the drives so the secondary disk is set to master (should tell you jumper settings on the label on the drive)

You could connect the failed disk as slave to see if anything is readable.
