Hey, I've just reinstalled my XP Prof SP1 onto a clean 160GB that has been
partitioned. My plan was to install the XP files in a 15Gb partition, then
configure it so that the user Documents & Settings folder had their own 40Gb
partition, and the Program Files folder also had its own 40Gb partition. I
see there is already a Program Files folder on the C: drive, and its also
already created the Documents & Settings folder on C:, how do I change the
default drive/folder locations and move the folders to the right drive?

Also, I have Office XP to install, I deleted the user accounts as they were
empty anyway, would it be best to install Office before setting up the user
accounts?

Sorry for all the cross-postings but I don't know which group matches the
question best.
Thanks!
Alistair

As for the program files directory, you are going to have this on the system
partition. When you install new programs, you can point to another partition
to install them.
