At 10 points a question you sure can ask alot of questions.

From the guidelines:
 If your question is easy to answer, offer 50 question points. If it is more difficult, increase the points to 100, and if it is very difficult, offer 200 question points.

Thank you, Ray, I was just going to post the recommended point assignments, you beat me to it.

Brief cut/paste from the above pertinent to this:

How Do I Get Answers?
Make sure to select the topic that best suits the subject of your question. Select a topic from the All Topics list, or choose one of the Expert Zones for a list of topics that apply to your profession. Then, follow the "Ask a Question" link on the topic page. For example, if you are asking a question about setting up a Javascript page, the best place to ask that question is in the Javascript Topic.  Remember to only use the Community Support Topics when trying to give or receive information about the Experts Exchange website.

When you get to the "Ask a Question" page, first give your question a title. Be as specific as you can so that it will be easy for Experts to determine if they can help you. Next, select a point value for your question. If your question is easy to answer, offer 50 question points. If it is more difficult, increase the points to 100, and if it is very difficult, offer 200 question points.

Finally, follow through with the Experts. An email notifying you of comments and proposed answers for your question may arrive within minutes. Experts often provide solutions within comments, as well as answers, so remember that you have the option to accept comments as answers and grade them accordingly.

It is important for question askers to respond to these postings as soon as possible. This lets the Experts know the legitimacy of your question, and gives all members involved an opportunity to establish background information, which leads to a working solution.

First I think you misspell something in your question, I belive you want to have C & D for your first drive and E, F, & G for the second drive.

The hard way, fdisk your secondary HD and state a secondary partition for ALL the partitions on the disk.

I still don't get it, you have C and E on one drive and you want them to be C and E, that is the same.

The way that the letters area assigned to the drives are
C primary partition of first disk
D primary partition of second drive
E secondary partition of first drive
F secondary partition of second drive
G CD ROM
This is assuming you have two HD with two partitions on each disk, one primary and one secondary on each disk

Let's make easy; First drive is 0, second drive is 1.  Primary partition is a, secondary partitions  starts at b. The configuration I belive you have is the following

Partition                 Letter
HD1a                         C
HD1b                         E
HD2a                         D
HD2b                         F
HD2c                         G

To change to
Partition                 Letter
HD1a                         C
HD1b                         D
HD2b                         E
HD2c                         F
HD2d                        G

You need to Fdisk the secon drive, delete all partitions and make new ones AS SECONDARY partitions, as you don't boot from the second drive it doesn't need a prymary parttition
