Assuming that your current Win95 drive c: is a single partition, you should have no problem. Check your c: drive and make sure jumpers are set to master - not standalone. Set jumpers on the win 3.1 drive to slave, and install on the same cable as the other drive. Boot up your computer, go into the bios and autodetect (if it has that feature). If not, set head counts, cylinders, etc for the primary slave.
Reboot after this, and you should see your drive d:.
