Hi,
Can somebody provide me info about the min. number of files reqd. to load and run Windows95? We have a hard-diskless system and intend to load the files onto the RAM off a network.

Thanks,

The minimum files required to run windows 95 is command.com io.sys and msdos.sys (just like DOS). This will provide you with a command prompt only mode. If you alson want the GUI I would recommend doing a custom shared installation on a network server and deselect all non-essential items
