I just installed my OS (XPP) and partitioned my 250G harddrive into 3 partitions in the XP setup. I have 2 optical drives set up on 2 separate IDE channels, and my harddrive on SATA. When I partitioned, XP set up my first harddrive partition as C:, then it set my 2d and 3d partitions to F: and G:, I guess because it picked up the 2 optical drives and set those up as D: and E:.
I have only formatted the harddrive partitions, and so far, the only partition with any data is C:.
What's the easiest of renaming the other harddrive partitions as D: and E:, and the optical drives as F: and G:.
