Version B (OSR2) comes only with new PC's
and requires the PC be WIPED, ie. NO OS on the HD.

Unless you have B on CD and a system disk with drivers for
CD ROM setup with a version of DOS and correct AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS FILES....

AND willing to wipe out and start over then answer is NO...

If you didn't get Service Pack #1 for Win95 I'd grab that
from www.microsoft.com and look for other minor patches.
While there, grab the POWERTOYS!!!!  QuickRES is
my favorite.    Tweak UI (user interface) is very good also.
Tweak UI makes a new icon in control panel, quickRES an
icon in the task bar at far right.

Sorry to confer with bravado.. BUT.. there is no way to upgrade from version a to version B without completely restarting your system..
