how can i dynamically block win95 from accessing partition(s) of my hard drive (i am not reffering to omitting the icon from MyComputer window), for security reasons (like as, wishing having stable system on one partition, and all sorts of alpha's on other)

You can't do this with the security that win95 gives you.  You need to download some shareware that will do it for you.  Go to the following link and check out the program "Magic Folders", it may do exactly what you need.

You can use Partition Magic to "hide" a partition. It is NOT accessible to any operating system, including Windows 85, until you unhide it.
