    Not sure I even know exactly how to ask this, but I'll do my best. I've
    installed Vista Ultimate 64 (new volume c) on an additional hard drive.
    I want to install games on a seperate partition on this hd. I was unable
    to install the first game I tried (Eq2) I got the error that I need to
    select a valid directory. I posted on the eq2 forums and was told that I
    needed a fully qualifed directory. The partition is new volume e. I just
    had to type e:\games\eq2. That worked fine and the game installed. I
    have some other games to install, and I am wondering if there is some
    generic command I need to type in for other games. I had installed
    Hellgate London in e without error messages, but I noticed later that it
    didn't show up in my list of programs, or in the remove programs through
    the control panel. I had completely reinstalled Vista on the first
    partition (new volume c) after hellgate was installed so maybe that
    caused it not to show up. After I reinstalled Vista I formatted e, and
    started over so I just have eq2 on e now. Hope I made at least a little
    sense, being the amateur I am. Thanks
