I've checked www.microsoft.com site. They has requirements for
Windows95 486/25 or better. I'm sorry but you out of luck: you
can't install Win95 on 386

BUSUKA: UUUUUHHHHHHH Wrong Answer
Win95 needs a 386DX (it won't work on an SX) processor and 4 MB RAM to install!!!!
I installed it several times!!!
Your problem is probably a memory manager such as EMM386 or something!!!!!!
First upgrade your DOS to 6.22 then delete everything out of your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT except HIMEM.SYS and try again (your WIN95 directory must been copied to your harddisk before trying this!!!)

So direct your UUUUUHHHH to Microsoft, maybe personally to Bill Gates. This is not
what I dreamed, this is what they say.
