Incorrect version of dos with win95B

Server: Netware 3.12
Hi! I have a small network, 25 users. 8 users use dos, 2 users use Windows 3.11, 15 users using Windows 95. The last computer that I added has Windows 95b, the second release of Windows 95. In all the previous cases I created a directory in the 'sys:public' directory and copied the command.com from which ever dos version the user had.
(IE V5.00, V6.00, V6.21, V6.22)
When I started using Windows 95 I copied the command.com to 'SYS: root directory' and all my dos window sessions worked. Now with the Windows 95b, when I run dos applications or the dos windows, all return "Incorrect version of dos." I put the first version command.com of Windows 95 in a directory called 'sys:\public\V7.00'. But the 'b' version also looks here as '%OS_VERSION' returns V7.00 from both the
first and second release of Windows 95. In the login script I added an IF-Then-Else to check for the one LOGIN_NAME with the Win95B version. What is the right way to handle this problem?
