If you have the original release of Win95, then FAT32 is not available.  Drivers for it came with the first release of OSR2. (Win95B)

I have the original version. Isn't there an upgrade or drivers available?

I'll answer you again...
FAT32 isn't available for use with the early version of Win95.  If you get OSR2, it is not an upgrade.  You must do a full, clean install, including FDISK and FORMAT of the hard drive to use FAT32.
Sorry.  Let me know if you need more.

Dave,
To further explain, early Windows & Dos cannot access a drive partitioned with FAT32.  
If you have a hard drive larger than 2GB, and want it partitioned as one drive, FAT32 is your answer, as FAT16 limits you to the 2GB partition size.
Complete info about FAT32 and OSR2 can be found in the FAQ, here:

I hope it helps.

Ralph

davespitzer,
I just noticed the grade of "D".
You could have simply rejected the answer again if you didn't like it!
Sometimes the answer is not what one wants to hear, but it is the correct one.
If you continue to grade so poorly for a correct answer, then I don't think you will find a high level of cooperation among the other experts here.
