Right-click on My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista).    Select Manage.    Click on Disk Management.    Highlight the recovery partition in the graphic display on the right side (click on it); right-click; select Change Drive Letter and Paths ==> and pick whatever available letter you want (or simply remove the drive letter -- then it won't show up at all in Explorer, My Computer, etc.).
