I installed Windows 95 from floppy disk, but have
grown tired of having to insert 5 or six different floppies
when I want to install a new driver etc...  Is there anyway to
tell Windows to look for the CDROM where it would normally
tell me to got to a floppy?

Why not just click "other location" or browse to the CD-ROM when installing those drivers?

Hold everything.
The easiest way to do this is to use policy editor on the windows 95 cd.  run poledit, with the admin.adm template loaded and go to open registry.  Go to local computer then system and then set your path to d:\win95, where d:\ is your cd rom. Or if you have the space copy the .cab files to a directory (generally windows\options\cabs and set the path to that.
