Close everything, just so we're starting from the same place
Double click MY COMPUTER, double click your C drive, right click boot.ini, choose PROPERTIES, uncheck READ ONLY
If you do not see the file, on the top of the EXPLORER window, choose TOOLS > FOLDER OPTIONS, choose VIEW tab, choose and check SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS and uncheck HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES, the right click the boot.ini file and do as directed

A note of experience if I may....
Don't use "my Computer" as a means of file exploring...IMHO it sucks
Use Windows Explorer...
You can create a shortcut on your desktop to windows explorer by....
Start/All Programs/Accessories/..Go to Windows Explorer and right click and choose "Send To" and select Desktop (Create Shortcut).....Much Much better file explorer with an interface that's much more self-explanatory....
Just some advice..

I know, that is semantics. I find it is easier to walk people through a process with MY COMPUTER since it's something they are usually more comfortable with....
If you really want a good file manager, go here
get powerdesk 4 (powerdesk 5 is not free, but they still offer version 4)

Open the boot.ini file and edit it so it looks like this
[Boot Loader] Timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [Operating Systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
We need to change the default line so you don't have a little instability at start up.
as for missing drive
Right click MY COMPUTER, choose MANAGE, choose DISK MANAGEMENT and expand the window
what do you see?
