Default Dynamically changing drive letters after boot on a dual boot system

As my subject suggests, i am running a dual boot system comprising of two win xp systems. The second system (F:) is a clone of the first system (C:).

My problem is this: all the programs on the second system still have references to the C: drive (since there is no way to 'mount' systems). And so i need to able to CHANGE the drive letter of the second system to C: when i boot through that system, and vice versa.

To put it in another way... I need to be able to SWAP drives C: and F: dynamically, straight after i have booted through one system, where the active system is always set to drive C:.

Yes but i need it to AUTOMATICALLY change drive letters when i boot... so that the filesystem i have booted with is assigned to C: and the other one is swapped to F:
