win95 install over win3.00

I have former 386  PC now upgraded to P133, on which
I want to install win95. The PC currently runs DOS 5.0
and win3.00. I tried to run INSTALL from the CD (full version) first from DOS, where I was told to run the
installation from windows. In that second attempt, I was
told to use the update version CD, and install over win3.1x.

I wonder:
Wich other updates are really necessary, before installing
win95 from the CD I have?
Would it be better to first remove  win3.00  from the disk?
Would it be of any gain to first update to a higher DOS version ?

Kind Regards!

Assuming windows is installed in "c:\windows", type the command:
"pkzip c:\win.zip c:\windows\*.* -r -p -ex"
That will compress windows into one file. If you don't have pkzip, I'll send it to you.
Once this is done, destroy the windows directory and start installing 95
If you need a deltree-like command, mention it, I'll send one to you. DOS 5.0 doesn't allow destruction of entire directory structures in one command.
