    A & B or set aside for Floppy drives. And for B to work, the B connection of the floppy drive cable has to be hooked to the floppy. Now that is what I have always been told, and I do know thats the way it worked when I had two floppy drives. But maybe someone else knows something I don't know. But I think A & B can only be used for floppy drives. As for partitioning your Hard Drive, one of the easiest ways is to use a program called Partition Magic. Click Here to download a trial version When the site comes up just click on Try Now. It is a very simple program to use and it will also let you change drive letters. It will allow you to set a partition to any size you want and create as many partitions as you need.

    51978 - Order in Which MS-DOS and Windows Assign Drive Letters

    I don't think you are going to achieve what you want - What are you trying to achieve?

    (I think you will find the 'trial' version of Partition Magic is no more than a Demo version. Anything more than that and no-one would buy it . . . <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> )

    I think Leif is right. According to what I just read, it won't allow you to make any changes. Sorry I could of swore the 1st time I tried it , it had a 30 day trial period that allowed you to make changes. But that was along time ago, so who knows. But I will say that most will tell you it's well worth the money for such things as you were asking.
