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 letters..so i chose D because that was my real C harddisk..question..how do i change it back to C letter?

If your booting from that patrition I dont think you can from regular windows. I dont know about safe mode though.

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.
