Default Change drive order in XP...is it possible?

When I rebuilt my dead Compaq PC, I must've hooked the IDE cables to the two CD drives backwards, because the one on top (usually the first letter, like D: ) is E:, and the bottom is D:. Can you reverse the letters of the drives without rewiring them?

Right Click on my Computer>Manage>Disk Management.

Right click on teh drive change it to a letter further down then right click on the drive that you want to have that letter. Then go back to the original drive and give it the 2nd drives letter.

Or give them any letter you want. The only one you cant change this way is the drive with the Windows isntall on it.
