So, if I have multiple drives in my system, I can get the install disc to align/format a particular drive of my choosing? Right?

By chance, do you know the answer to this queston?:

I also was wondering whether you can install files and programs that were created in XP to a drive that was formated NTFS using Windows 7. Any implications there?
I read that XP Mode is required for some programs but that's only for apps/programs that are only compatible with XP, right? They are most likely to be older progs, I guess?

Files created in XP should easily run in Windows 7 most of the time?

Any files from XP will work fine in Windows 7 providing you have programs capable of opening them. And most programs that run in XP will run in Windows 7 as well.
