I would write down which of your current hard drives are connected to which
pata/sata ports. 

It's important that you be able to put it back exactly the same way before
you do anything. 

Also know exactly which drive is the current boot drive. And know the
current boot order in the bios. 

Then I would disconnect all drives, and connect the new drive alone with the
dvd drive and install Ubuntu.
