I put the 80gig as the master and the 20 gig with everything I had as the slave. Well I installed xp. I then looking at the other drive. TOok everything I needed off that drive. WEll the drive was active I put on so it made the drive letters for the old drive as c: and d: Then it made this drive I just put in (80) as G: So i deleted the c and d drive. Well just deleted the partions. So i thought that way i could make this drive active...I did..and make it c: Nope..stays there. Well while looking at the tree in window explorer..
