Default Re: hard drive

When you install the game, do a custom install and you'll be able to change the install directory from C:\Program Files\ to X:\Program Files\ all the links will still work as that's all setup by the installer.

Also, your signature is a little long, it may get edited for you. It should be less than or equal to 5 lines total. FYI

Install the OS to your C drive.
Then when you pop in the CD for games it gives you an option of where to install it.
Check the name of the drive (Go to my computer and both hard drives should be listed)
Then install it to that drive.
