I want to upgrade to Win 95 but I hear it's not very good with computer games. Can I reload DOS (NOT Win '95 DOS) if I have Win '95 installed?

all you have to do is install dos on your hard drive and then install 95,  and not let 95 delete your old os files.
then you have to edit  msdos.sys to enable dual boot (0 for off, 1 for on).
you can then hit the f8 key when starting win95 comes up on your screen and choose your old operating system.
most dos games I,ve used do run under 95 in either a dos window or from the 95 dos prompt.
