You cannot. The boot drive and system drive in Windows XP are two drive letters than cannot be changed.

Depends on the drive. it might be possible.

What are you doing? We used to use batch files to re-edit stuff at boot. Networked drives could be assigned too.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

abraham abyad, I'm inclined to agree, drive letters are assigned by the OS at boot up and can't be changed, BUT you can write a short script and have it run at start up to change the drive designation after boot.
Suggest you distinguish which drive to change by having your machine locate a drive containing file XYZ rather than have it change drive (X) to eliminate possible confusion. Probably not the best way, but should work.
