I would like to eliminate the following two icons from my
Desktop: Network Neighborhood and The Internet.  (They
aren't shortcut icons.) It doesn't appear that I need them at the moment, but I would want to be able to access them, if necessary.  Should I delete or move them...and how should I perform either operation?

the networkneighborhood can be hiiden using peledit.exe found on the 95 cdrom.
the internet icon should be able to be deleted. you could get it back by reinstalled your browser or just create a shortcut to it.

for n.n.:
run poledit.exe in admin\apptools\poledit folder on 95 cd
if you asked  to open a template file choose admin.adm
select open registry from file menu
dbl-click local user icon
open local_user\shell\restrictions
check hide network neighborhood
click ok select savefrom file menu
back at desktop use f5 to refresh or reboot system
