I am in the disk management section of the MS management console attempting 
to assign a drive letters and find the help text confusing. I have created 
five partitions on a 40 gig HD in a WinXP Home system.

All drives are in place and formatted. Only C:\ and G:\ are labeled, 
although I labeled the others earlier while restoring the OS to a cleanly 
formatted HD. How to I go about labeling Drives D, E, and F?

I had thought the letters I assigned while restoring the OS would stick to 
the new partitions, but to my amazement they have not.
