I've set up W95 in c:\windows.000, as I failed to clear the
hard of the c:\windows directory, and i would like to set it back to normal. Any sugestions ? And if I reinstall W95, how do I keep all the apps I installed in working condition (without having to reinstall them too) ?

Here is all you have to do...
1) rename windows.000 to windows
2) edit msdos.sys
   i) change WinDir=windows.000 to Windir=windows
  ii) change WinBootDir=windows.000 to WinBootDir=windows
 iii) save and exit
3) edit your registry and replace every instance of windows.000 with windows
   i) This sounds like alot of work, but, it isn't if you grab a program called 'reg search and replace' from www.windows95.com
4) edit your system.ini and win.ini files and change any occurance of windows.000 to windows
5) Save everything and then reboot the machine.

That should take care of just about everything.  Anything that doesn't work after that point is due to a program that has windows.000 in some configuration file of it's own. You can change these as they crop up.

Hope that helps :)
