AFTER INSTALLATION WIN-XP-PRO, CHANGING DRIVELETTER H: TO NORMAL C:

Due to during install and not alert to this discovered that due to 4 cardreaders in system, winxp took as driveletter H: instead  C:
I could change the driveletters on cardreader so C: is free again, but in windows at runtime I can't change H: to C:
Some workaround possible?

If the above doesn't work the next best solution is to reinstall XP with the card reader disconnected so that there are no other devices like this.  Then XP should get a C: drive letter again.

You can also just leave it as H:.  Windows will run OK with a different letter.  You just need to remember that it's H:.
