Ive got myself a new internal seagate drive, i have 3 other drives on my system (two of them so small not even worth having), I seem to have managed to install the new one as a slave, I'd like this drive to be the boot disk, the master and the boss of everything, how do I do this? and without losing any settings etc from the original master/boot drive if possible!

I have a g4 with mirror door thingys and im running 10.3.9

I read somewhere that the new drive needs to have the os installed on it and finder, how do i do this? do i need the original disks or can i just copy from the original master/boot?

I'd appreciate any help, and if possible in language i can understand! (im not up with all the terms u see!)
