Yes u can have both win95 & Linux on the same system:
I'm running Win95, OS/2 Warp Connect, Dos & Linux on the same computer! You cannot run both at the same time though, you will have to reboot to get from Win95 to Linux or from Linux to Win95.

The only thin gneeded to do is decide How much space u want for Linux System, for Win95 system, and for a shared FAT parittion if u want one...

For u might be 200Mb for Win95, 200Mb for Linux and the rest for a FAT partition that can be used in both Win95 and Linux!

If u want any more info or help with how to do it send me a line.
