Here is my dilemma:

I have a Windows-95 machine...Acer Acros 486-DX4/100...24 Meg of 
RAM...Windows-95 boots from drive C which is a 500meg WesternDigital drive...I 
bought and successfully installed a 1gig WesternDigital which to Win-95 is now 
drive D:...I have an IDE Cd-Rom as slave to the original HD and the new HD is on 
Secondary IDE controller...I am able to Restart Win-95 in Dos mode and do the 
Inst_ide installation...After everything is installed and it is time to reboot, 
the system recyles and then gives me an error message that it cannot load 
operating system....At this point I have to put in an old 6.22 Dos boot disk, 
run fdisk, set drive C as the active partition and restart to get windows-95 
back...At this point drive D:(freebsd) has disappeared from by desktop and is no 
longer accessible unless I fdisk it and reformat it...What happened to the Boot 
Manager that I asked for it to install during the installation?????

Any help will be greatly appreciated....
