mariat,

be sure to get the Upgrade version of Win 95 ( there is also another version which does NOT upgrade Win 3.1x to Win 95 )

Just do the upgrade, with this upgrade version, Win95 will use all your current .ini files with no problems.
BTW, there's an option to recover your old windows when you have problems and this option works perfectly!
Win95 asks you if you want to save your old system files, if you choose yes here, you can restore your old windows in case of problems!
If you need a driver, you can always search it on the internet, in case windows doesn't have drivers for a hardware component, it will use your Win31x drivers without any problem !
(deleting the old windows version is not recommended, due to eventually needed drivers)

Hope this helps.
If this is NOT the info you wanted, feel free to reject my answer.

Note that you could run into trouble if you have less than 8MB RAM installed...
16 MB should be minimum...
Just wanted to let you know.
