I have 2 partitions on a Compaq Server: C: with 2 GB and D: with 7 GB. How to "move" all databases (the default-one's and one small user-db) from Partition C: to Partion D:? The whole SQL-Installation is in the default-path on C:. It's MS SQL Server V. 6.5 SP 3 and i look for a comfortable way to configure this server more cleverer, if possible without backup/restore!

It is possible, but not recommende to do this. If you look in the sp_device you will find wiche system table are storing the information about where the diveice are stored. If you change these values to your new ones, it should work.

There is no stored procedure sp_device and maybe the question is misunderstood: I don't want to move the complete tree "mssql" with the Explorer as file-system from C: to D:! I am looking for a detailed (!) explanation how to manage this with the SQL Enterprise Manager (for example).

Would this help you :
Sql Books Online: "Administrator's Companion" Part 5 Data Management --> Chapter 12 -->Basic Backup and Restore Operations -->About Load -->Moving  a Database.
If this is not what you need, reject the answer. I'll give you another one, which is more complicated (you will need to change system tables and Windows Registry)
