Urgent: How to change the CD-Rom Drive letter?

I need to change the drive letter for my CD-Rom.
In windows 95/98 I'm able to change the drive letter via Device-Manager by changing the property settings for the drive.

I don't seem to be able to do that with Win-2000 via this method.

What is the Win2000 method for changing the Drive letter for a CD-Rom?

If someone post a working method within the next two hours, I'll increase the points to a total of (200).

Control Panels -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management.

Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management.

In the lower-right hand side you have Disk 0, Disk X, CDRom 0, CDRom X, etc..
Right-click on the information part of the CDRom you want to change drive letters, and select "Change Drive Letter and Path" (This is where it says: CDRom 0 CDRom (D:) Online)

A new window pops up, you can remove the current drive letter assignment of the cdrom, and then add a new one.

Thanks for the info, but I couldn't find the CD-ROM listed using your instructions.

The extra detailed instructions gozoliet gave was enough to point me to the right direction.
