I have a pentium 200mhz machine with Win NT 4.0 already on
it.  I want this box to be a Windows 95 machine.  Are there
any pitfalls in just slamming in the Win95 installation disk and going a:\setup?  Thanks.

Do you still have an option to boot to DOS under NT?
Do you want to retain your NT or just make your box run on a single platform (Win95)?

If you have partitioned your hard disk as NTFS you will have trouble porting it over to Win95.  This is a problem if you do not want to keep your NT anymore but want to keep your old files.

If you want to run only windows 95 and you have a NTFS-partition, you can't remove this partition using FDISK.

solution-> run the setup for WINDOWS NT again. When the setupprogram asks you where you want to install NT you can delete this NTFS partition by pressing 'D'.
format the partition with the NT setup program with the FAT filesystem. After formatting reboot your system and install Windows 95. No Problemo !!!
