what do u mean? do u mean programs u install or the programs windows installs during set up?

It sounds a bit like u know nothing about what happens when u install programs,

it should ask you what directory u would like to install the program to, just make sure u put the directory to your raptor.

right, so when prompted for a directory to install the program just point it to the other drive.
