Is there a driver that allows Win95 to recognize 6 button
joysticks. Right now it thinks my 5th and 6th buttons are
rudders and throttle controls.

This may be because you have your joystick setup as a flight stick in the control panel.  This joystick should be supported there, if not you will need the software for it and drivers

Download the software and install it.  I know that your joystick is probably not a Microsoft product but the chances of this working are reasonably good.
