Moving the Master and MSDB Databases

How can I move the master and msdb database devices to another disk in SQL Server 6.5? Can I mirror them and then unmirror them, swapping to the mirror device ?

I don't think you can move the master and msdb after install. I would not recommend mirroring and breaking the mirror, either.

I know for a fact that you can move other databases and tempdb where you want, but I've only heard tales of woe from people trying to move the master.
