yes the reason why it worked is because you used win98. just like DOS( okay, exactly like DOS), it assigns drive letters based on the disk's location on the cable (IDE0,1,2,3,) and the partition type (primary, logical drive).
with winxp/2k this does not work the same way because they do not assign drive letters the same way DOS does. hope that made some sense.
