The files needed to boot the system up will need to be on c:, the OS files can be on any other drive that you decide. But it would be best to install the OS to another drive than to move it after it has been installed.

Assuming you'll be using W2k pro or above, you can do this from the computer management snap-in in the administrator tools in the control panel only after you install windows. You should also only do this before you install any other program(or maybe even driver) because of the file paths they generate in each program log. You can easily do this using Partition Magic even if you have installed programs after installing windows.
