DOS help needed!

  1. I have 4 volumes on my pc. C: D: E: and Z:
    all are NTFS execept for Z: which is FAT32.

    When using a DOS boot floppy, the first and only drive it can see is the Z: drive, and so it assigns it as C:

    When I then execute the NTFS reader stored there, it detects the other volumes, assigning Z: as C:, C: as D:, D: as E: and E: as F:

    Is there any way I can assign my FAT32 partition (detected first and assigned C: ) as Z: before invoking my NTFS reader?

    I know it's not too important, but I'd like to get it to match the assignments listed in 'My Computer' in XP.

    There is nothing you can do. DOS assigns drive letters as it sees them just like Windows does. A real pain in the *** system..
