this may be a silly question, but I can't find the answer, so...

if you want to install win95 on a computer w/o CD-ROM drive, what can you do? I know there is an option in Win95 that lets you make bout 30 installation disks (on a PC with CD-ROM) ... what is the name of this program, and where is it located???

You must find a computer that has the CAB FILES on it:
---------------
If Windows 95 was preinstalled on your computer, there may
be Windows\Options and Windows\Options\Cabs folders
on the hard disk. The files in these folders server
the following purposes:

If you did not receive a Windows 95 CD-ROM with your computer, these files are used by the
Create System Disks program to create a floppy- disk backup of the Windows 95 installation
disks, should you need to reinstall Windows 95 in the future.
When you add or remove a Windows 95 component using the Add/Remove Programs tool in
Control Panel, Windows 95 Setup uses these files to complete the process instead of
prompting you to insert your Windows 95 floppy disks or CD-ROM.

If you have not created your floppy-disk backup of Windows 95, do not delete these files until you
have done so.

If you already have a floppy-disk backup of Windows 95 (or if you received Windows 95 on a
CD-ROM), these files are provided as a convenience to you. If you delete the files, you need to have
your Windows 95 floppy-disk backup or CD-ROM available whenever you change your Windows 95
system configuration.

I do not want to use backup, but the cab thing is correct, NOW I remember how it was.
Thanks anyway, you deserve your points.
