I can't rename a drive letter under my Window 95?

I have a SCSI removable hard drive that comes up as my F: drive.
I would like it to come up as another drive letter, like drive N:
or something.  How do you do that under Windows 95?
I go to System Properties and list Disk Drives under View devices
by type.  I see the drive listed "iomega jaz 1GB".  Under its
settings, the "Current drive letter assignment" is "F:", but the
field is read-only.  I cannot change it.  The section marked
Reserve drive letters is all dimmed.

The other settings are:
Target ID: 3 (which is the scsi ID I'm using for this drive)
Firmware revision: H.71
Logical unit number: 0
Disconnect is checked
Removable is checked
Synch data transfer is checked
Int 13 unit is checked, but is also read-only (can't change the setting)
Auto insert notification is is not checked, but is also read-only.

Other things that may be useful.
I have two IDE controllers in my computer.  The first IDE controller has
two hard drives on it, my C and D drives.  The second IDE controller has
one drive on it.  I've partititioned it into six partitions.  For some
reason they come out to be drives E, G, H, I, J, K.

ParodyCommented:
The BIOS on your SCSI Adapter is controlling this removable (thus making it an INT 13 unit, like a hard drive.)  

Most SCSI cards with BIOSes come up with a message like: Press CTRL-A for Adapter Options during the POST.  Look in your SCSI BIOS settings for something like BIOS or INT 13 Options, and in those options for Removable Media Support.  Disable INT 13 Support for Removable Media, then reboot.  Now you should be able to change the drive letter.  If not, try going back and disabling all INT 13 support in your BIOS Options.  If you do do that, you will not be able to boot to a SCSI device, and you will have to run drivers to access SCSI hard drives and removables. The drivers are already there for Win 95, but if you reboot to DOS mode you will have to load the appropriate ASPI and Jaz drivers.

Note that also all your other drives will move up one letter.  Always a problem with DOS/Win 95. :)

Good luck to you!
