    Just purchased a HP that has win XP preinstalled. This machine will be on a network
    environment and the network drive is "F". The cd-rom is using the "F" drive letter.
    How do I change the cd-rom to a different drive? I tried to disable it and reboot and it
    will then recognize the "F" networked drive. However, when I enable the cd-rom back it
    changes on reboot and cannot log in to the "F" drive on the network.
    I hope I am making sense. I have been working on this for a portion of the day and I'm
    probably just going rambling on. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Any help will greatly be appreciated!

    Try this.

    Control Panel, Admin Tools, Computer Management, and select Disk Management. Then right-click on the CD-ROM drive in the right pane and there should be an option to change the drive letter to whatever you want.

    Hope this helps.
