Default Assigning drive letters?

Hi, a question about drive letters:

Is there a way of changing drive letters in W98SE?
I have a computer with two HD (and two CD).
I have maid partitions on HD1, 1 for the system and 1 for data.
Then I wan't to have HD2 as a backup drive with one partition.
What's annoying me is that the system has got drive letter C:
the data partition E: and the backup partition D:
They work alright but I would like to have the data partition as D: and
backup as E:
I know how to handle this in XP for example, but how about W98?

Many thanks in advance !

One way to do it is to re-partition the second physical hard drive so that instead
of having a Primary DOS partition, it has an Extended DOS partition with a Logical
DOS drive.

Order in Which MS-DOS and Windows Assign Drive Letters
