Hi once again ..well I installed the cd rom sucessfully yesterday (thanks again for your help)and then proceeded to install w95 over 3.1. Worked fine when I rebooted ...then the cdrom dissapeared..the hard drive dissapeared and now all is gone..woes on Canada's birthday cause everything here in Montreal is shut down.
I cannot format the hard drv. 'cause I only have a w95 emergency boot disk and this doesn't seem to do the trick ( lesson #1435 for me ...ALways have a back-up boot disk for any OS I use!!).
In short can anyone tell me where I can dnload a 3.1 emergency boot disk so I can format the hard drive and try the whole process again....or any other sugestions? Am really stuck so any help will be most appreciated.
ps.....the machine I'm working on is a 486/66 w/ 20 meg mem.
