Yes. Linux comes with a program called LILO which will install itself in the root partition of your first hard drive and allow you to boot either your linux or your Win95 partition. Most Linux installation programs will present you with a menu to configure LILO where you can add whichever partitions you want to be bootable from.

Another option is to get a copy of a program called loadlin, which can be run from the win95 DOS prompt which then boots linux. (you need a kernel image in your win95 partition to do this, but it isn't very difficult to get one)
