    I just split my 120 GB HDD into three 40 GB partitions, but now I have my CD drives as E, F, and G, and the new partitions are H and I. How do I get the partitions to be E and F, and switch the CD drives to G, H, and I? Stupid question I know, but thanks for your help.

    Two options spring to mind
    Go to Admin tools/Computer Manag/Disk Manag/.
    Make your non partition drive letters x/y/z.
    Then change your H/d letters to c/d/e.
    Finally change back your other drives to f/g/h.
    Or in Device Manager, "disable" each entry for cddrives and bypass the need to change to x/y/z by changing direct to c/d/e.

    Those new XP management tools are awesome I definitely recommend fooling around with them. ;)

    You can access the tools VIA control panel as well see screeners to know exactly where your going.
