There is way to do that.

You can use SUBST command to do so but when you reset your computer that must be done again.
For example: SUBST X: C:\NEWDRIVE
That command makes driveletter X: associated with c:\newdrive folder.
( subst X: /D  removes drive letter)
You can use any driveletter for that, if letter is not in use of other drive!!
( and your LASTDRIVE=X: limit in config.sys)

ps. Good idea is put that line to your autoexec.bat, so every time you reset/power off and back on  your computer that command will be executed.

You can also use Fakecd.exe or CDEMU.exe programs to make new drive letters from directories. (But windows uses these "drives"  like CDROM drives)
