You can't for the most part if using XP. People have hacked it to work.

If using linux or solaris you can do it as long as you understand that the drive may be called something like SDA1 or SDB2 or something like that. Might have another name.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
