I formatted a free area on my hd as a new partition. I can access it through it's letter (E:), but neither explorer nor the desktop or menus show the partition in their lists.
I tried "new hardware", I reinstalled the disk drivers, to no avail. How can I tell Win95 of its existence???

W95 will automaticall ydetect new partitions. There is nothing you can do to influent it.

Anyway, you said "formated as a new partition" you have run both FDISK and FORMAT succesfully?

When you run fdisk, what does the "display partion info" show?
