setup failure win95

When I reload windows 95, after the program does a
system search before loading I get the message;
"Setup cannot create a temporary directory, Free some disk
space ande try running setup again.
I have 190mb of disk space available. Anyone seen this one
before? john

What exactly do you mean by "reload". Is this your first attempt at an install? Or by "reload", do you mean "reinstall"?

95 will look at the swap file settings in determining disk space.
if you have it set to let 95 manage, it is counting all 190m as used.
cut the swap file to 30meg permanent and see what happens.
