Default Hard Drive question..

During the instalation of windows xp i set up a partition of 10 GB. Now when im trying to install games and other programs it keeps trying to install on that 10 GB and i no longer have enough room. Can sombody tell me how to fix this problem? Much appreciated.

when you install a game if you don't just click next every time without looking most of them have an option to choose where you are installing, some you may have to start a "custom" or "advanced" install though. on some it may be a little trickier though and you may have to edit a config file to set the install location
