Why do the firewall and antivirus have to be on C:? Mine arn't. They seem to work ok.

And just did a search for wincabs, couldn't find it. Sounds good to be able to format without using the disc. Could someone please elaborate how to do this?

generally they are running all the time and it helps with speed. also they intergrate with windows (exspecially norton) and can end up with problems due to being on a seperate drive. i also find goback runs a whole lot better if the goback.bin is on c as well, its just a speed thing. my general rule of thumb is anything that runs at startup should be on c.

wincabs...you can copy over the cab files off a windows disk to the harddrive. i just call the folder wincabs but you can call it anything you like. i usually use UBD (ulitmate boot disk) when install OS's which has a good cab copy. once the cabs are copied over you can start the install from the harddrive which makes it so much faster.

i might just have to do a partition faq part 2 :)
