The changes to the C drive will not affect the second partition. So you can reformat the C drive and leave the D alone if that's what you mean

Not sure what you are asking.

By default, Windows assigns hard drive letters as follows:

Primary IDE master, primary DOS partition C:
Primary IDE slave, primary DOS partition
Secondary IDE master, Primary DOS partition E:
Logigal drives on primary IDE master in order
logical drives on primary IDE slave in order
Logical drives on Secondary IDE master in order

Followed by any IDE removable media drives CD, ZIP, Superdisk.

In XP, that is the 'default' when you set up a system.When you add a new drive, it is added after the last removeable drive.

Hope this helps.

Chas
