I try to make a handfree server based installation of Win95, including Novell 32 bit client. This give me some problems. Two of them is mention in other questions on this site.

After installation there is a directory call wininst0.400 on my PC. Is this correct or shout it be automatic deleted by the
installation ?

I hope that someone out there can help me,

Best regard

After an install, the sub-dir wininst0.400 should be removed
by the install routine.

If you look inside this sub-dir you will see it is the files needed to setup that pc. Sounds like you crashed out during an install and did not use safe recovery, but started a new install. Anyway, you may safely remove the wininstx.400 sub-dir(s)
