Hello, Wish I knew this before I made the rig - inteli7 - 16gig ram - Ocz 60 OS boot drive - 600gig sata 3 Velociraptor. I want my apps on the spindle drive - But Noooo windows does not want me to do that. Changes to registry are not supported, links and junctions and other suggestions seem more hassle that its worth. Is there ANY solution to this? Should I just screw it and install 64bit XP? If I decide to give in what i can partition the 600gig and use that- 120 gig ok for the OS?

You can install all of your software on your Velocirapter. You will have to tell each piece of software you want to instal, where you want it located though. I have a 1TB Western Digital Black as my D: drive with a folder called "Apps" that has all of my games and software.

true - most of the apps give me a choice - browsers seem to not. Even installing on secondary drive, I can see that many many files are being loaded on the primary drive.

It is what it is.
