My brother-in-law has been having nothing but trouble with his older WinXP machine, so he reinstalled the WinXP with SP2 included. Apparently, he inadvertently installed it to his back-up drive (D) rather than his main drive (C). Everything is working beauifully now. When he boots up the machine, it asks which drive he wants to boot from. He says D and off they go. The problem is that the D drive is only 5GB, of which about 850MB is left. I think he also reinstalled drivers and programs to the D drive.

Other than starting all over again and reinstalling to the C drive this time, are there any other options?

That would be the option that makes the most sense. Moving the installation from D: to C: is very difficult, and usually results in you reinstalling anyway. :)

That's pretty much what I thought, but wanted to double-check. Thanks!
