How ever they are is how they have to stay. If you change the drive letters your system will no longer boot.
Can you post a picture that shows what they are? Open My Computer, click on View and select Details. Capture that and upload it here:

wekk then umm teh thing is im am downloading a game and it wants to put 2.5 G bytes in my C drive in wich would be the single largest part of the whole dingdang dong thing which bugs,because all the files in there are relativly small and even soo ive amssed in 4.8G C drive to have only 1.33G left i still think this is weird because it only wants to put mere kilobytes in my D drive which seems like they should be flipped or perhaps the game is downloading backwards???
(if pick isnt working it would show: C 4.87 G total size 1.33 G free space
D 52.3 G total size 30.2 G free space

The question you are asking now is why is a Game that I am downloading or have download trying to put 2.5GB of files on my C: drive. I want it on the D: drive.
Is this occurring during the download of the game or when you are installing it?
If downloading, use a different web browser, like FireFox. Once installed, start it and click on Tools then Options. Under Download Options, check Always ask me where to save files.
Now use FireFox to download the game and save it to a folder on the D: drive. When you install the Game, take the Custom path if offered so you can tell it where to install to, and again, chose a folder on the D: drive.
Hope this answers your question. If not, please ask again.
BTW: A XP boot drive of 4.87GB is way too small. A minimum of 10GB is recommended, I prefer 15 to 20GB.
