A badly framed question. If you partition a new machine out of the box, a
machine that has no pre-loaded programs -- other than the OS, the machine
"help" programs (i.e. IBM Access or Gateway whatever), then (after a bit of
housekeeping like deleting MSN shortcuts and so on) that original C: drive
should be set. After that you could follow the suggestions posted here --
programs on G:, data on H: and so on. If, however, you have a 5-year-old
machine that's never been partitioned, is there some checklist you can
generate before you partition to make sure you have your _system_ only on
the C: drive?
The answer to the second question -- path -- is in windows environment
variables, which I'm checking.
