Installing the old hdd as a second drive will preserve your data but not your registered programs.
Oh! The programs is what I want to save, as in addition the programs for which I have the CDs, I have quite bit invested in programs that were downloaded, and, above all, fonts.

I had intended to put back the old hard disk afterwards and reinstal Windows XP, because the computer, though old, functions adequately if it's not given too much to do.

buy an external USB or firewire case, install the old drive into that
Err . . . what's a 'USB case'?
