Default change drive letter back to C

have a problem.. i installed win2k to my pc with corrupt xp.. win2k formatted my hd by itself when i installed it..and when i was installing win2k, i was asked which partition do i want to install it. and it showed my 2 partition..but i noticed that my C (which is NTFS) became D.. and my D (FAT32) became C. they switched i chose D because that was my real C do i change it back to C letter?

Go to Run in the Start menu and type "diskmgmt.msc" and hit OK.

You'll get a lovely piece of crap program for managing your partitions. You can change drive letters and default boot drives in there. Have fun.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
