C is just a logical description of an partition. You can alter it in winxp to S and then only winxp sees it as S! But never change driveletter of OS-partition!!! Many registry and file pointers point to the original driveletter... making your system unbootable
Normally in your config and start winxp:
-windowsxp system disk should be C
-other partition (Windows 7) is normally D, in case you have an cd/dvd drive maybe E
