> For example, maybe all of you can shed some light on 3 questions:
> 
> 1. In 5.x - part of the install was a performance test of the system
>    and all the hard drives - and it would suggest or let you specify
>    where the message store and log files should go.
> 
> 2. Why is Active Directory such a huge component of Exchange 2000
>    functioning?
> 
> 3. Why the heck does most of the data reside on a single drive by
>    default?  This question sort of reverts back to question #1 -
>    and it just seems silly for the install process to not want to
>    take advantage of multiple volumes, for performance reasons.
> 
> 4. What's up with this "M" Drive?  I know it's a virtual drive, but
>    it's just such an odd way for storing data.  Especially when you
>    are trying to view the contents of the M Drive - you can only do
>    it inside of Explorer, or Browsing through Folders.  If you try
>    to expand the tree inside of the IIS Utility, it gives an error
>    of not being able to list all the subdirectories.  It's just plain
