Your orginal hard disk must be setup as master. when you open cover you will see who made this hard disk and model # then you can go to web site to find out the right setings.

Feller...

When you mentioned that your NEW hard drive is set to Slave (jumpered) you didn't mention that you change your OLD hard drive setting to Master/Slave present, which you should have done.

You have 2 options here:

Option 1:
========
1) Old drive "Master/Slave present" Primary IDE
2) New drive "Slave" Primary IDE
   these 2 drives will use the same cable.
3) Cd-Rom Master on Secondary channel using separate cable

Otpion 2:
=========
1) Old drive "Master" Primary channel
2) Cd-Rom drive Slave Primary channel
   these 2 drives will use the same cable.
3) New hard drive "Master" Secondary channel.

You choose whatever you want.

P.S.: By the way Win95 will see your second hard drive as long as it's configured properly and could be accessed in dos.  No need to detect it (in win95) or anything like that.

hope this helped

  Actually, I think running FDISK might help a lot.
