Quite a while back, I installed a new d: drive.  Now c: is running out of space.  I would like to make d:
the master and keep the data on it.  I can lose the data on c: but of course that includes win95.  How can
I put win95 on d:, move it to master and keep the data on d:??

Make drive d: bootable with the command sys d:
then copy all files from c: to d:
turn of your computer and make the master/slave changes on your drives an then start it up again..

This works only if you don't have a multi boot on your system. But if you are only running win95 then this should be all..

If you follow the current suggestion, you'll lose all your long filenames. I have a method of doing this. Reject the answer and I'll post.
