Okay I will do the fresh install instead of trying to change everything, thank you very much. :)

I do have Sabayon 4.2 installed on a 2nd hard drive.

Is there a way that I can transfer all of my files from this hard drive to that one?

Short answer: yes, there is. :P

Seriously now, you could either boot 3.5 (if not running already, obviously), make a backup, reboot into 4.2 and copy your backup, or you could look into the chroot procedure, which isn't very hard, just a few steps.
I don't know the procedure by heart so I'd have to take a peek in the logs and pasties I've got somewhere on me hard drive.

(A few minutes later...)
Or you could take a look at this post ;)

I do not have them dual booted since I don't know how to do that. I did it once a few years ago and have looked into it since but didn't figure it out within a reasonable time period. What I do is turn off the computer, plug in the other HD and turn the computer back on.

I read somewhere that having 2 os's connected at the same time would screw up the computer and hd's, so have not tried to have them both connected at once.

Hey maybe you guys can put that in a stickie, or a wiki. :king:

That way you won't have to keep repeating the same answers, over and over.

I am so glad I was not attempting to drink anything at the moment Image

You need to see gentoo documentation as it covers almost everything you will need
