Assuming you are using Windows XP, go to <Start><Control
panel><Administrative tools><Computer management><Disk management>

If you installed to H: it will have to remain H:. If you want it on C:
you must install to C:.

Disk Management will not allow you to change the drive letter that XP is
installed on.
