Have you taken a look at the RootKit Revelations help forum?

    Subject: rootkit behavior
    
    Can a rootkit hide on a seperate physical disk from the 
    operating system? In other words, if WINNT is on c:\ can 
    the rootkit live on physically seperate data drives e:\ and 
    f:\?  I have a client who wants his c:\ drive reformatted 
    and reloaded to insure that no rogue program remains.  I 
    haven't been able to give him a definitive answer 
    concerning his extensive data drives.  Also, does anyone 
    know of any useful detection tools other than RootKit 
    Revealer and Blacklight? I saw the post the other day about 
    Helios but read that 1) it requires the .Net framework 
    (ouch!) and 2) doesn't work for Win2K.  Any advice here 
    would be greatly appreciated.
