    There's no way to change it, you'd have to format and reinstall.

    It will work fine the way it is, so it may not be worth formatting, unless
    it really irritates you.

    & at a guess it did it because you had a Zip drive installed when you
    installed windows?
    A lesson for anybody out there listening.
    Best to only have a floppy & CD hooked up & even disconnect any other hard
    disks as well just for fun.

    you can change the drive letter simply by using PartitionMagic,you can
    download it from www.powerquest.com or other download sites ,it can also
    resize your partition without deleting any data,and many many funtions need
    you to discovery by yourself
