Performa 5300 CF to IDE [message #340077] Thu, 23 March 2017 15:51

I have ordered a CF to IDE card from ebay. I'd like it to replace my old
hard drive on the Performa 5300.
Do I just install it and and then install OS 8 from the CD drive?
DO I have to do anything else that I wouldn't do if it was a normal HDD?
