My biggest concern is having the maximum amount of space on the startup, although I will probably replace my other internal 80 GB drive eventually with a 500 GB too. But since certain applications need to be loaded on the startup (i.e. Motion and Livetype), and their associated media and files takes up so much space, I really need a large startup drive. I don't have much more than just applications on my startup, and its only about 15% free.

I was able to clone almost all of my startup on the new drive via usb, including my user account. Does that mean I can just plug it into the computer? What key do you hold down so that the computer asks you what startup drive you want? Do I just choose the new drive, once its plugged in via ATA, and go from there?

Sorry for the newbie questions, but I am trying to be extra-careful, since this is the startup drive.

Any help is appreciated!
