I am running a AMD Athlon XP 2600 1.9 GHz

I put in a new hard drive, and now the new drive is shown as "F" drive.

Is there any way to get it back to "C"?
It is not a huge deal, but I have found a program that will not install
on F, it insists on C.

When I put the new srive in I left the old one in and transferred my
data over. If I formatted the hard drive could I change the letter to C?

Thanks,
Kathy

Kathy, if you do a clean install of XP ( delete and create a new
partition and format ) and leave the old drive disconnected until XP is up
and running.

When you do the clean install there will be an option to delete and
create a new partition. For more info you can check here.
