First off, why did you copy the files to your C drive first? It would have been just as simple, if not simpler, to install it from the CD (I'm assuming it's from a CD, right?).

If you're determined to install the files from the c drive, you have to make sure that the C prompt displays the full path where SETUP.EXE resides. On the Win95 CD, this is on the top level, but if you copied the files into a directory, that directory has to be in the path.

If you can't get it to work, just try installing it from the CD. Do the driveletter-colon-backslash thing to get to it, and then type setup and hit return.
