Hi,

   I have installed Win 95 on my PC, and the setup went thru
   just fine. However it tried to boot Win 95, it just hangs
out there saying ' win95 is now setting up your hardware
 and any plug and play devices you may have'. At this point it
 does nothing, just hangs ...

  Any idea what the problem could be?

thanks,
-Asavari

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/kb/default.asp 
On the left side of that page click troubleshooting wizards.
When it loads, select Windows95, then when that loads select:
Windows 95: Solving Problems Starting or Shutting Down Windows 95
and follow the instructions. This really does work.
Let me know how it goes please.

If you have the option in your bios, disable PNP, then reboot.

Have you tried to destroy the Windows 95 directory and reinstall from scratch?
