I am currently running Windows XP on my business computer from the C:\ Drive. I also have a D:\ (secondary drive) which is virtually empty. What I'd like to do is install XP on my D Drive, remove it from the C drive then keep the c drive as a secondary drive making D the master.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible and the easiest way to do it?

Assuming you're happy to lose everything on the D: drive (destination drive), you can clone the whole C: and fit it on D: - as long as D: is the same size as (or bigger) C:

You'd want to use an imaging program, Norton Ghost and Acronis True Image are good paid programs, although there are free versions from your hard drive manufacturer. What make/model hard drives do you have?
