Partitioning a new hard drive

  The Crofter 22:53 09 Jun 2005

I know there are already a few threads on here on the subject - but none that appear to answer my particular query so here goes.
I have a new computer with a 200GB hard drive with just windows xp (home) on it. I have created three separate user accounts for my sons. Before I install any software, I want to partition drive C: into two - operating system/programs on C: data on F: (two optical drives are already assigned as D&E). I have Partition Magic 8.0 in readiness for the deed but wonder will the user accounts documents&settings folders stay on C:?

Yes they will stay on C: while you do the partioning.

You can then reassign then to F by (in each account)right click on the my doc folder select properties and type in the new location to f:\Documents and settings\your logon\My documents
