Do not want to stick the 100 GB drive in place of the DVD Drive becuase I use that way too much... Let me know thanks..
Also, does anyone know how close other makers of HDs are to getting a 100GB 72K drive? Heard something about this in other posts...

It keeps things running faster since I don't have the driver partitioned. It's usually a good idea to partition in a storage sector if you are using your drive as storage as well as your os/program drive. It can sometimes speed things up noticably.
