Win95 over WinNT

I have Windows NT 3.51 running, loaded onto a system that was originally DOS and Windows 3.1 (the Windows 3.1 is still there).  Now I wish to load Windows 95 and preserve the NT installation if possible.  Is this problematic?  How is this done -- just follow the vanilla Windows 95 installation instructions?

Thanks,
hlind

If you install the 95 over NT you'll lose the NT Boot manager. You'll have to reinstall it in order to get the PC to boot into NT. I remember reading about some piece of software that can do it but don't remember the details. Try finding it with Alta Vista or some other search engine. Or you can simply run the NT setup after 95 thus recreating the Boot manager.
BTW: if you wish to run same applications in NT and 95 you'll have to install then in both environments.
