Drive Letters


R. McCarty

About using A: & B: for drive lettering, here is a snippet from a KB

Your computer can use up to 26 drive letters, from A through Z.
Use drive letters C through Z for hard disk drives. Drive letters A and B
are reserved for floppy disk drives. However, if your computer does not
have a floppy disk drive, you can assign these letters to removable drives.




Something else I picked up.
Before formatting you can make your boot volume anything
other than C and Windows will install fine. However, some
software packages are hard-coded to install in C:\program
files and won't install if your boot volume isn't called

very annoying.
