Default Running Programs from Sec HD

My friend is building himself a new computer. Top of the line (currently). Anyway, he is woundering if it would be a good idea to install his OS (XP) on his primary HD, and all of his programs on his secondary HD.

What do you think of this configuration?

Thanks, Gimmick

P.S. I can get all of the specs if you want.

Why is it a bad idea devilish? (be as technical as you want, what terms I don't know, I can find out.) Oh, and yes he has a very nice 160GB WD HD, 7200 RPMs & 8MB Cache.

well just like micro said,..some programs do not work well if theyre not on the primary drive or c:...however all my games are on d: and my media files are on e:...i just keep all apps and programs for work on c:..i think it boils down to personal preferences. thats why i think its not a good idea,..eventhough it can be done.
