Manfred Kroeger's ECD is available via FTP from ftp.embl-heidelberg.edu.
This is a database which describes how to assemble a non-redundant E.coli
sequence from all known sequences (i.e. who overlaps whom and where they
map).  Software to assemble the sequence is available from EMBL on their

You might just try running a comparison search (BLAST or FASTA) of your
sequence against the Bacterial section of the database, and then searching
ECD for the accession numbers of any E.coli sequences which come up.
ECD can be searched via WWW at http://golgi.harvard.edu/gilbert-bi.html
(if you are truly stuck in the gopher world you can find it on the
gopher server at golgi.harvard.edu, but be warned that this gopher 
is not really set up for human consumption -- it is the search engine
for the Web server).
