Win95 OSR2

I've been trying to install win95 osr2 and get "Control Data Corrupt" error. I assume that it's because the system is Fat16 and it needs to be Fat32. Has anyone used Partotion Magic to convert to Fat32 before installing osr2? Can it be done without losing data?

In a word, YES. Partition magic can and WILL convert to FAT32. Ive done this many times. Although I'm not sure that this will fix your problem, but it's an answer to your question. feel free to reject this question if it's not what your looking for

I gather by you're answer that you think there might be another problem relating to the OSR2 install. Can you give me any insight into the installation? The error was "Control Data Corrupt see setup.txt". Setup.txt says that it is an older style partition that requires re-formating. Thanks for any help. Jim
