Can I change the 'System Volume' to a different drive?

By omysillygirl ·
What determines which volume is the System Volume?

I have a 120G drive partitioned into C: and C: used to be where Windows was installed. I added a drive G: and installed a new WinXP there, making G: the Boot Volume, then deleted all files from C:

What I would like to do now, is format C: but I can't because it is the System Volume. How can I make G: the System Volume? What would happen if I simply switched the drives in their physical position along the drive data cable?
