    I just rebuilt my C drive on an old computer whose bios will only
    recognize up to 20 GB. I'm running Win'98 2nd ed.. My old C: drive
    and my new C; drive are both Maxtors. To get the 20 GB, I needed to
    install Maxblast, which I downloaded from Maxtor. My D drive is a
    Western Digital. Both drives are ATA 66.

    During the boot up cycle, the system recognizes both drives. Then
    Maxblast loads. When Windows comes up, The D Drive is not on the
    directory list in windows explorer. On the old Maxtor C: drive, both
    drives were visible. It appears that Maxblast is doing something so
    that the Western Digital Drive does not show up in the directory.

    How can I get both drives to be accessable?

    There is a great tool called partition magic. That might help.
