Try right clicking my computer from the start tab.

Pick manage,then disk management from the left tree. Your drives will be shown in the right pane. Right click which drive you wish to change and change drive letter and paths will come up.

Hope this works as I have never gone further than this. lol ain't got the bottle.

Right-click My Computer, choose Manage. Click on Disk Management, then right-click any partition to rename it (except your system partition, which can not be changed).

Oh, I didn't know about that right-click bit, I always use control panel. Nice one.
