Provided your hard disk is big enough just install W95 in a different directory. It does not matter that your data/files are created in Win3.1 as they can be read in W95. With both operating sysyems installed you can boot into which ever you want to use. I would suggest that once you are happy with W95 you uninstall win3.1

Will the installation of Win95 in different directory give me an option of dual boot. Like if you install NT W/S and win95 you get an option of boot OS

Yes, Windows 95 can give you an option to boot another OS installed on the same machine, just like NT does it.  In 95, this option is disabled by default, however.  Once you install Windows 95 in a different directory, download Tweak UI utility from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/download/tweakui.exe.  It will let you enable this option in Windows 95, and you will see an OS menu when you start your PC.
