Trying to do this in Arc 9.3.1.  Can't work out how to make it visible.

Hi Ben,

Where does the issue occur?

This article should walk you step-by-step through the process:

Creating a New Layer from Selected Features 

And if not, here is a video with the same process (specifically for 9.3.1).

If you want to create a new feature class of just the selected features in a feature class:

If you would instead like to create a Selection Layer:
