Reinstalled XP Pro not seeing 2nd hard dive

  Triumph Thunderbird 10:55 02 Dec 2006

After three years of running XP Pro SP2, I decided to do a clean reinstall.On my system I have 2 Hardrives, USB Hardrive, USB Zip, CR Writer &a DVD Writer. When I did the reinstall everything is fine apart from the fact that my second hard drive is seen by the Bios & Xp but in the Computer Management utility it shows the C drive as disc 0 Healthy System Disc,butit shows disc 1 as online healthy (Active)when I write click this disc the only option I have is to delete Partition which I donot want to do as it has 35GB of data on it. Can any one please tell me how I can asign a drive letter to it.

In the end I decided to delete partion on the second hard drive & restore from a recent back up. Good things back ups the first time I have needed one.
