It should be ok.

If you have Xp on c:, and in Xp, Install 'whatever program' and chose to put it 'there:' XP will expect the program to be 'there:' and so will look for it 'there:'

Where 'there:' is dont matter, as long as the prog stays 'there:'

I hope this makes sence.

Loading a Program on a Hard Drive with One Operating System can be loaded to any partition and it will work. But not all the files are loaded to that partition, some go on to the same partition as the Operating System.

Partitions are just deviding one big space up, into several smaller spaces, that add up to roughly the same size (the fence takes up some space).

One big field, put a fence up (or several fences), and have two fields (or lots). the fence can go anywhere, it just devides the space up into pieces.
