Hi.  I just installed a slave harddrive (unpartitioned, not formatted)

Windows detects it and installs it, and it is working properly.  However, there is no drive letter assigned to it (ie "d:").  How can I partition it and format it to ntfs?

Thanks,
-Sam

Sam,

 A drive letter will be only assigned when you partition it. The Windows XP installation CD should help you in partitioning and formatting it as a NTFS.

Start > Run diskmgmt.msc

Right click on the drive
Select Partition
