I believe from other questions I have seen regarding this that you cannot use the full version to install over dos and 31.
If you try you will get an error message stating that there is an operating system already installed and you must uninstall it to proceed.

The full version is meant to be used from a freshly formatted drive and as a stand alone application. It install dos7 which replaces your previous and win95.
Personnally I would return it to where you purchased it and get the upgrade version. Although I would ditch the 31 I would still install my old dos as a kind of backup system. There are times when 95 locks or crashes and the old dos can save your butt.
