I have a machine with two drives, Drive 0 (2 gigs) which is partitioned into 3 -- OS/2 BootManager (2), and two FAT partitions of 504 and 1506megs respectively.  On the 504 is NT's OS loader.

Assuming you select, from OS/2 Bootmanager, to go into NT, you get the NT OS loader, and, if you select NT from ITS loader, NT's OS loader bootstraps over to the Drive 1 and begins the NT workstation bootup on the NTFS drive.

THEN, after everything's said and done, the NTFS drive for some reason becomes the C drive, even though it's Drive 1 in the chain.  How come?

You can adjust the drive letter assigments with Disk Adminstrator. Be sure to make a backup of your Disk configuration FIRST with:

Admin tools|Disk Admin|Partation|Configuration|Save
(have a formatted floppy ready)

THEN use tools|Assign Drive Letters
