I would like to redo my entire system.
The reason why I want to do this is becaus my system haltes sometimes and I want to reinstall most of my software cause I added a new hard disk.
How should I do this and is there an expert that can guide me through the process?
There will be more points as we get allong!

Hey, 141572, I am no expert in this area.  But I do know something about installing Win95.

If you have a new hard drive.  Just start by install Win95 in your new hard drive.  Then after completion of installation, then you can make your old hard drive a slave drive.  Then you still can use all your software in the old drive.  Some of the IDE drive have a little jumper, so you can make it a slave drive. The  configuration usually right on the drive itself or on the anti-static bag that come along with the hard drive.

Let me know if you need any other help.

The new hard-disk (D,E,F) is installed etc.
What I want is to clean the C disk and update Windows.
When I try to update with a the OEM-windows disc, it reports that there was a not supported driver found and cancels the operation.
