Win95 Install hangs

Win95 install hangs right after reading the license agreement. (I have just read another answer in here regarding the same problem, but I believe my CD to be OK as it has been used to successfully install on a 486 DX2/66 machine).

My setup is as follows: Cyrix 6x86 P166+, 32M, 2.5G HDD partitioned as (.5, .5, 1G, .5) 10X CD, Sound card. I have been running the much fussier NT 4.0 Wkstn on this machine for a couple of months with no problems which is why I am intrigued by this problem. I thought 95 was more tolerant.

I have tried removing the sound card as I thought it might be interrupt conflict related, but it didn't matter.

Help please!!!

before you try to install run scandisk and defrag to make sure your hd is ok. also make sure that there is no virus detection turned on in your bios.
