Also installing Windows 3.1

I am using Windows 95. But, I am a developer and also want to install Windows 3.1 on the same machine so that I can test some 16-bit applications on that platform. How can I do that without disturbing my current Windows 95 setup if possible?

Thanks,
Sanjay

I am new to this forum, so by mistake I put all my points on another question. Let me evaluate answers to that and then I will have some points to contribute here.

A lot depends on which version of Win95 you have. Right click on "My Computer" and properties. It should tell you 4.00.950, 4.00.950a, 4.00.950b, or 4.00.950c. The first version is the upgraded version, the A version is the upgrade with the fix patch, the B version is the OSR2 version that only comes with new computers, and the C version being a "beta" 98 version.

I would guess you have the B version, since you want to install Win3.11. This version does not let you dual boot Win3.x and itself. The easiest thing for you to do is to get Partition Magic or System Commander to set multiboot capabilities.

I prefer Partition Magic because it completely separates each operating system on separate partitions of the hard drive and it's cheaper.
