Need Help with Reversing HDD Designation and removing an OS!

So this is a really confusing situation. Basically, I had two drives, C: and D:. C was my system and programs drive while D was my games and media drive. The OS on C got so corrupted I couldn't even do Safe Mode. So I installed Windows XP Pro on my D drive to get back into the computer. Doing this caused D to become C and C become E.

In utter frustration, I pulled the corrupted drive that was originally C drive and boxed it (I'll get all the shit off of it later in an HDD enclosure) and bought a new WD 320GB to function as my system drive. I just finished installing it (all drives are SATA). Now it's coming up as E and the media and games drive is coming up on C.

It's right now being partioned and Windows XP Pro installing on it. What I want to do is pull the XP OS from the Media & Games drive (which is C right now), revert it back to D and put my new drive as C.

What's the best way to do this?
