Replacing A HDD in a Dual Drive System

I am running an Ubuntu XP dual drive system.  When the system boots it 
comes up to the system choices.  The Ubuntu options are listed first 
(8.04)  Then the "Other System".  In this case it is the XP Home 
Edition, which is on a separate drive.  I would like to replace the  XP 
drive and do a clean install of XP on the new drive.  From what I can 
see of the  boot sequence I should be able to remove the old XP drive 
and replace it with a new drive.  I should  then be able to start the 
system and go to the new disk and install the new XP program on the new 
disk.  Is this correct or possible?

Thank you.
