On my windows 2000 machine my drives are:
   d: (cd-rom)
   g: (hard drive)

Why? Because I had a windows 2000 installed on a harddrive, moved that
harddrive onto a secondary IDE controller and plugged in a new harddrive
as primary master and reinstalled windows 2000.

No, there is no way to change the drive letter of the boot drive so I
can't change that. And there are plenty of installation programs that
assume you have a C:\Program Files directory.

But there are programs that get it right, so the proper value must be
in the registry somewhere.
