Want to replace smaller (1.6 Gb) secondary HD (IDE2 controller) with larger (20 Gb) retaining same drive letters. Primary HD (FDISK #1) has 6 virtual drive letters (C through G) while secondary HD had drive letters H and I. When I plug new drive into same connector(s), do the BIOS setup and run FDISK, it wants to assign a letter D to the primary partition which screws up my program layout.

How can I put new drive into unit and get the software to identify the new partitions in the order I desire (ie., H and I)?
