I recently installed a 37G SCSI drive, and I have an 18G if my power
supply will tolerate it. I bought these drives because they were dirt
cheap and I wanted something faster to burn CD's from, but they are very
  obviously faster than my IDE drives, and I'd like to switch my OS from
the IDE to them. How risky is this, and what is the least painful way to
do it?
