win95 installation from hard disk

I currently have Win95 installed on a Toshiba laptop.  I have copied the Win95 installation diskettes onto the hard drive (within a directory).  The reason that I do this is for reinstallation of modules.

When I run the win95 "setup", the setup wizard starts, but win95 looks for the installation diskettes from the floppy drive (there are no place to set the path to the hard drive).

How can I point the installation to the hard drive containing the installation diskettes ?

1.  The way you tried is the way for CD-ROM version.  For the floppy verion you can't do the same(even you copy everything) and need the first two diskette in order to run the setup(after first two diskette you can use brower to browe the c drive to do the rest installation).
