I have irecently nstalled SP4 on Windows 2000 and I have a USB Memory Stick
that is being recongized by the operating system but when I go to My Computer
to try and access it, I am not being able to find a Drive Letter that is
assigned to it. I plug it into my Windows XP system and it works fine. How do
get a drive letter to be able to access my USB Memory Stick on Windows 2000?

It's probably trying to use a drive letter that already being used. Try
reassigning the jump drive letter in Disk Management.
Start|Run|diskmgmt.msc

To open Disk Management, click Start, point to Settings, click Control
Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer
Management. In the console tree under Storage, click Disk Management.
