floppy&network

We are using a PC equipped with IBM Cyrix 486/50, VESA bus, Ethernet board 3com 3c509 and Windows 95. When we installed network software from Windows 95 setup we can not use floppy disk anymore. Any time we try to access a file in a floppy disk the computer crashes. It is not a problem of disk controller because we already tested 3 different controllers. If we start in DOS mode, the floppy disk drive works perfectly. Only when we are under Windows 95 with network software installed the problem appears. What can I modify in the setup to have both floppy disk and network working under Windows '95?

I'd look to the memory address area and the floppy drive in the systems area of my computer..
There is a conflict in the IRQ or Memory Address area that you will need to correct..without the computer in front of me, it is really hard to say exactly where the conflict is..But needlees to say it's probably a win95 vxd driver loading over a network driver somewhere..
Also check the load order of the components in the autoexec.bat and config.sys, is something loading at the wrong time, or can something be changed that will allow the floppy to load in win95
