The best solution is to use software like PC Anywhere which will setup a network type connection over a supplied cable to the other PC. If you do not want to purchase anything to help with this what you need to do is copy the DOS backup and restore files over to your WIndows 95 machine and then you can use the DOS backup and restore to move your files over.
