you cant make it B.. b is reserved for a floppy drive.. what you can do is use say partition magic to "deallocate" XXX meg from your drive..
boot from a linux install D.. tell it to install on your unused space and use lilo to controll which OS you boot from..
do you have un partitioned drive space?? if so.. what distro are you going to install? most of the newbie distros will configure your unparitioned space autmatically... linux doesnt have any of the C: or D: crap... so windows will look exactly the same.
well actually im putting slackware on... i have always wanted to try it out and see what its all about getting tired of windows....but im really not up to date on things and i could use help....
if you have free unpartitioned space on your drive.. boot to slackware and run cfdisk and you can create a swap and a linux partion with your free space.. if you have no free space you need use the suggestion above and use partition magic to free up some free space.
once you get your freespace.. you just run "setup" and it will walk you through a little ugly installer.. its ugly but it is simple and quick.
once you install slackware you will need to fire up some lilo changes so you can boot into windows... its not hard I or others can walk you thorugh once you get slack running.
