kc90315,
There are a few things to consider before you install that CDROM.
I think you may run into a little trouble installing that new hard drive.(3.5GB)
1) Depending on the age of your 486, you may need to get an EIDE controller.  Check your computer's documentation.
2) Depending on your Windows95 version, you may have FAT32 available.
3) If you use FAT32it, it may affect how you decide to partition the drive.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.
