    I just installed a second hard drive. I jumpered this new hard drive as master, and my old hard drive as slave. The problem is, when I try to install winxp, the old hard drive reserves C: as the drive letter, and the new hard drive is assigned the drive letter F. How can I keep all the data on my old hard drive, yet make the new hard drive be C.
