If you mean the files like 'format', 'mem', 'xcopy' etc they can be found in the directory c:\windows\command if you installed windows in c:\windows. Old files which have been saved when you installed Windows 95 from an older OS will be in a directory OldDOS.

So no file will be lost from the old OS ?
Even with OSR2 ?

As far as i know all files will be put in the oldDos directory and Windows puts new versions of some files in the c:\windows\command directory. You can read the .txt file in de windows directory for more info of which files will be substituted. As always before you do these setups it's better to make a backup of all the files you can't risk loosing.
