using old hard drive as storage, deleting windows xp

Okay, bare with me while I try and explain haha!
I have a hard drive from my old personal computer that I just put into what was my family computer, which has become my "new" personal computer, as a slave drive. I'm trying to make it so my old hard drive is just for extra storage for videos, music, pictures and whatever other files I want to take off the main hard drive to use the main HD for just the OS (Windows XP), drivers, and programs. Is it possible to delete EVERYTHING (OS, drivers for the old computer, program files, ECT.) except the videos, music, ect I have on the old hard drive/slave drive without errors? Both HD have Windows XP. I also don't have room on my main hard drive to store all the files I want to keep that are on the slave drive so I wouldn't be able to move them to just wipe it.
I really don't know much about using a slave drive.
