I had installed Windows XP Sp3 and it installed to D: partition.Now I have D: as my primary partition.
Also my boot.ini file is missing and an error appears stating this every time I boot my PC.
Can I change the drive letter of my primary partition to C:? And how can I get my boot.ini to work properly?

is there anything actually installed in this instance of XP? or did you JUST get it installed? if it's 100% fresh (i.e. nothing you need to worry about saving) your quickest solution is to format and reinstall

yes you can do this....as in you're physically able to...but it RARELY works out the way you want it to....and is generally a bad idea...

how many hard drives are in the computer?

I have 2 hard drives installed: a 160 GB on which XP resides and a 500GB one.
What can I do about the boot.ini error at startup?
