    Lost/Changed Drive letters (XP/ SP!)

    Does anyone know how to get XP Home to recognize my primary drive as drive C? I installed XP home on a clean drive and it recognized it as the C drive but after I installed a new slave drive it, XP changed my primary drive to drive F
    Also, something got screwed up and I lost Drive F (which was my zip drive) and made it drive G, so now I had Drive C (master HD w/ operating system), Drive D (CD Reader), Drive E (CD Burner), Drive G (Zip Drive), and Drive H (Memory Stick Reader). Everything works fine but this bugs me). Anyone know how to change these Drive letters so that they are in succession?
    Thanks,

    <font color=red>Drive C (master HD w/ operating system), Drive D (CD Reader), Drive E (CD Burner), Drive G (Zip Drive), and Drive H (Memory Stick Reader).</font color=red>
    If C: is your OS ,thats good. D: CD-Rom,thats good,E: CD-RW, thats good. If you want to change the rest follow these instructions <font color=black> BUT BE WARNED</font color=black> changing paths can cause problems sometimes.
    Go to <font color=blue>start</font color=blue> , <font color=blue>control panel</font color=blue> , <font color=blue>Administrative Tools</font color=blue> ,Highlight <font color=blue>Disk Management</font color=blue> ,On the tool bar click on <font color=blue>Action</font color=blue> ,on that list click <font color=blue>All Tasks</font color=blue> and select <font color=blue>Change Drive Letter & Paths</font color=blue> , and go from there.

    Thanks for the info. Was able to navigate to the disk management utility and repair the problem. sure not as easy as Win 98, hey?
    Thanks again,
