It is HIGHLY recommended you keep the original drive as a backup. Virtually any weekend you can find 120 Gig drives at major retailer for under $70 after rebate. An unhacked drive also makes troubleshooting quite easy.

Yes, simply do a 'Clear and Delete everything'.
3) Will that backed up image of the origianl drive work on another series2 with no problem? Theres no shows recorded.
It is not supported; but sucess has been reported using MFSTools to pipline the contents of your original drive to the new drive and expand it. Then run Sleeper's TiVoScripts on the new drive, skipping the backup and restore phases. Make sure the variables file in /cdrive/tivo has been deleted if you try this.
4) Can I sleeper iso a dtvio v 3.1.1c WITH shows recorded on it? and have them remain and be playable after the "fix"
In theory, yes. Sleeper didn't test it, and problems have been reported running 'Sleeper' on the drives from a two drive system. I have not verified this, but I believe the best approach would be to start with a drive from a single drive system, run TiVoScripts, and after you have tested the final result, run Blesstivo on the second drive and insert it in the system.
5) Can two (2) drives be used with sleepers iso on a series2 with a new hdd cable?
OK, at least you did some reading.
I know I'm gonna get slammed but I have searched til I was sick of reading lol
