In my experience, when Windows is on anything other than the first
partition of the primary master HD, the results are unpredictable and
event-sequence dependent. 98 will walk the bios chain and the first
dos-readable partition becomes C:. NT/W2K/XP have completely different
algorithms for assigning driver letters during setup and post setup.
The number of permutations for failure modes for NT is stochastic.
In other words: don't f*cking bother.
