I belive that the pc will always read the drive with the OS on it as the master. I would try installing the OS on the 120gig HD

control panel, administrative tools, computer management,

then on the left frame of the window, choose disk management.

The two hard drives should show up if you installed it correctly.

From there you can format the new drive with whatever file system as well as partitioning the thing to how you like
