Right, so I've just bought a second HDD, it is in my PC atm but I need a layman's terms guide of how to set it up. (Preferably with screenshots)

I also need help with installing Vista onto that second HDD while still running Ubuntu Linux on the first so I can dual boot.

Can anyone help me?

It should come with instructions for installing the drive physically in to your PC...
Can't really help without knowing the type of connector it uses.

As for dual booting - http://apcmag.com/how_to_dualboot_vista_with_linux_linux_is_already_installed.htm granted it's for dual booting on the same HDD, but I'm sure it's got enough in it to help you!
I think there may be some guide in the manual for installing them.

Set the new HDD to slave (should say how in the manual)

Install it into your comp

Turn on, put the Vista disk in.

Make sure you install Vista on the new drive. (will probs say D: instead of C

Have you installed Vista before?
