WINNT Folder?

    I was swapping drives and re-installed XP Pro and just noticed that I have a WINNT folder on the second drive.
    It seems XP is using it because that's where it's putting the $Uninstall dirs.
    My question is why would it put it on the second drive vs the active one with the Windows dir?
    thanks,

    Enyo,
    Thanks for reply
    %windir% gives me C:\windows
    It could be left over. That's kinda what I'm trying to figure out. Is that the case if the %windir% cmd says C:\windows?

    Enyo,
    Well it was probably from Win 2000. But I just tried to rename it and it won't let me. I'd kind of like to del it. Any suggestions?
    thanks again,

    Enyo,
    Thanks for links.
    What you suggested is kinda what I did and renamed it. Everything still worked on reboot so I zapped it.
    Always feels wierd axing a Win dir.
    thanks again,
