We have an ancient installation that is now reporting an error message that it can not write to "F:\MSSQL7\ ...". The problem is that there is no drive F: on this system anymore. :-(

Can someone tell me where I go to re-direct the error log? Never new SQL before 2005 so explicit instructions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

You can change it in Startup Parameters with an "-e" switch.
see below link for how this can be done...
