I rencently formated my dads computer for him and have come to put everything back on but have ran into major problems!! Please can anyone help??  

Problem 1 :-
    I have 2 hard disks, c + d and the cd drive e, while re-installing windows it wanted to format D so i went into BIOS and took it away. I continued to install windows without any problems and then went back to BIOS to put the D drive back. When in windows now though, theres drive c, d, e, f.....f bieng the CD-rom c + d being the hard disks and D is just nothin but is causin problems when installing other software??? Does anyone know why this might have happened?

Problem 2 :-
    After great dificulty making the modem connect again I've found the only way to do it is to make out that the modem is in the US, I live in England but if i choose that it wont work??

I hope someone can help me sort this???? I've never had any problems like this when setting up computers.

Thanks in advance

I have just looked into the disk problem and i think that they are both the same disk?? could the computer have partitioned it on its own?? If so how can i get it back to being 1 disk?

Use fdisk, make sure you're working on the correct disk. Remove all partitions, restart (just to be sure)

Use fdisk again and make the new partition(s).

If this didn't work, tell me what happened, your computer configuration and type of harddisks
