Can I extract files from a doublespace file?

I have a DBLSPACE.000 file taken from a deleted partition(!!) which contains amongst it's 90Mb two directories. Unfortunately, the file comes from an old 3.11 machine and I need to read it on a OSR2 Win95 machine - so I don't think I can even try to mount it as a compressed drive  (4k clusters).
Does anyone know another way of extracting files from it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yeah, this is pretty much what I expected. Now, don't get me wrong - I have the greatest respect for someone who's amassed more than 50,000 points, but I think I'll wait a while and see if anyone else has a suggestion!
If not, then as J2's answer would prove to be correct, I'll have no choice but to give an A Grade for the doom & gloom answer.

This maybe the answer you have been waiting for but wait.

The answer will consist of a long list of instructions, but to enable  me to force myself to sitdown and type them in, I need to be tempted with a BIGGER carrot.

I'm intrigued but I only have 145 points credit at the moment, so I've thrown this into the pot.
I'll keep on adding points until you deem the carrot big enough!!

Have you tried mounting the file with Win95's drivespace...I am sure that it is backwards compatible....

I had a machine that was doublespaced, I then upgraded to Win95 and it automatically found and mounted it....

try it out....
