Pretty much. Boot from the disk...follow the onscreen instructions.

But in your case (considering you're using drives that may have been previously used in Windows computers)...you probably will need to reformat the different drive you're installing so it will work in a Mac. When you boot from the Mac OS install disk...you need to open "Disk Utility" to format the drive.
