Changing drive letters

I have recently reformatted my C disk and reinstalled Windows xp. However, the C drive has been labeled G. How can I change this to C.

Check Disc Manager To see how many Partitions you have got

Thanks, Woodchip, for your suggestion.
I have checked in Disc Manager and it tells me I cannot change it.
How do I tell whether there are any partitions and if so what do I do about it?
