I installed XP on a system with an IDE drive and SATA drive a ways back.
Even though the system insisted on booting from the IDE drive before it'd transfer control to the SATA drive (where Windows was) - the SATA drive with Windows on it was named C:
On my Vista system I dual boot the 32 bit and 64 bit versions - and each hard drive is called C: when I boot to that installation.
Some different partitioning schemes may change the drive letter assignments - but I haven't been able to find a decent resource that explains it fully.
Here's an article on how to change them in XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307844
Here's a bit more on how they're assigned: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drive_letter_...r_of_assignment
