Inherited a SBS 2003 Server which has a system partition labeled F not C. This is causing Sharepoint to fail among other issues. How can I correct this to C drive? Is there a easy way?

You actually CAN change the drive letter of a system partition but it's rather complcated.  Basically it would be similar to a full hardware migration.  If you use the SWING method from www.sbsmigration.com, you can do this without even having the server go off-line.
