Changing a drive letter on a harddrive in XpPro

I have a new 2nd SCSI hard drive(36G) in XpPro and under the Computer Management section its displayed as a Page File...Therefore when I try to change the drive letter for the new hard drive it won't let me. The message I get is its a Page file and can't do a change letter, something like that. The harddrive is working fine etc. but I want to change the drive letter how do I do this?

First move your pagefile to another drive (c: for instance) then you can rename this drive

You're welcome. Just to explain to you: I only use win2k and because some things are different in winXP it takes some searching sometimes. Glad you solved your problem.
