    If you are not a developer then start with this it is the .NET 2.0 which may cover all you need because the .NET 3.5 is very big but it maybe relevant to only developers using the new platforms like WPF, WCF, WF, ADO.NET, Winform 3.5 and Asp.net 3.5.  Please copy the url to the browser window because this site is breaking good links.

  • As far as I know, it is not possible to change installation target. It must be installed to the system drive, which is the C: drive in most cases.

  •  The .NET framework only installs in your C drive however if you are a developer you can install VS2005/8 in D drive I have done it but if you use Enterprise library it must install in C drive.  I have also installed Oracle 9i/10g X86 client in Win XP D drive.  So check what you have installed and see what you can move to D drive so you can use C for things that must be installed in C drive.

  •  Thanks Caddre for you advice unfortunately I am just installing .net framework for sack for browsing aspx sites and other MS programs. The guy who fixed up my Laptop for me partioned it that way with XP using 2.XX GB and 3.XX GB in total storage I find it really hard to get around things. I can't format it now since it's has my important stuff on it.
