I'd like to be able to setup Win95 from scratch. I know that I need to insert Win95 bootup disk, turn the PC on and format. What do I need to set up Win95 from Win95 CD-Rom? Do I need another boot floppy disk for that? If so, how can I start it? I'm kind a beginner. Please respond to my question. Thank YOU !!!!

Format a disk so it's bootable (format a: /s). Copy format, fdisk, sys,mscdex and edit from windows\system onto the disk. Copy your cdrom driver (something like sgidecd.sys) as well. Create a file called config.sys on the floppy with the lines 'device=a:\sgidecd.sys /d:cd_rom' and an autoexec.bat with 'a:\mscdex /d:cd_rom'

Now all you need to do is boot off this disk and use format and fdisk as required to set up the drive, then run d:\setup.

You can of course put format and setup in the autoexec to make it all automatic if you want...

does not add the drivers to allow you to access the CD-ROM (on most systems).
