    Sounds like Win2k isn't assigning a drive letter for that drive.
    You can make it have a drive letter however.

    I'm using Windows XP Pro here, but Win2k is very similar and this should work.

    Right click on 'My Computer' and select Manage. You should get a box about computer management to come up. Toward the bottom of the list on the left-hand pane, there is a section called 'Storage' and at the bottom of that is 'Disk Management'. If that doesn't show up, you can expand 'Storage' to view this option.

    Here you can see all physical drives on your Computer, even ones without a drive letter assigned. You can change or assign a drive letter by right-clicking on the drive or partition you want and selecting "Change Drive Letter".
