im wondering how hard it would be to do myself,i currently have 40GB of hard drive,im wanting to upgrade it to 60GB,i do still have the windows xp cd that came with my laptop so im thinking of taking out this hard drive and putting in the new one,and booting from the setup disc
i was wondering if i could still open the cd drive even though there will be nothing on the hard drive?

Yes, That Should work fine. This is assuming that your BIOS will support a larger hard drive (should be no problem).

thanks for the info
