Do you have a Win 95 startup disk. With msdos.sys and sys.com on it.
Tell me more about how you're trying to setup, from windows?
from dosprompt?
Will you tell us the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model, How much ram , pci, type of mouse,
video adapter, network, what kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can think
of.

There are many variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve something while I don't know what
we're working with. :)

And what is the message EXACTLY, and at what point during setup/installation do you get this error.
Are you using a CD or floppies for setup?

joe_massiminoCommented:
I would make a bootable floppy with your CD-rom driver on it so that you may boot with access to your cd-rom drive. If you did this and still can't get it to load, or you have the floppy upgrade version, you may have to modify your config.sys, and/or autoexec.bat to get drivers, and other non-essential programs from loading prior to your Win95 setup. Win95 will search your hardware and replace as many of the drivers you will need to get going. In the case of hardware that may not be covered, and not much is not covered, you may supply the driver disk during or after you get Win95 in some sort of working order.

From what I think, you may have enabled the expanded memory manager, EMM386.exe. What you could do is do a check in your config.sys file and see whether there's a line something like this: DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE RAM

If there's a "RAM" behind the above line, you should change it to as follows to disable expanded memory :
DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS

Leave your Himem.sys untouched and do not put the "HIGHSCAN" option behind the EMM386.EXE line, co'z it might cause some kinky results while installing.

Many times 95 will report 'Not enough memory" only because that'sit's best guess. it does not always mean you don't have the memory.
