err...  boot from the dikette?

If it doesn't work, ger a driver for your CDROM, install it in the CONFIG.SYS on the diskette, copy MSCDEX.EXE to the diskette (if not there already), invoke MSCDEX from AUTOEXEC.BAT, boot from the diskette and run SETUP or INSTALL from the CD.

Boot up your PC with the diskette.  Go to the D: drive and type Setup.  It is a pretty straight forward install, it shouldn't be any trouble

Thanks for clear and concise answer; only thing I would like to add - those of us who are not familiar with DOS commands (the "Windows generation"), could use specifics on the exact command to use for implementation.

possum1, since Win95 (or Win98) runs on top of DOS 7 (or 7.1) it never hurts to get familiar with the "DOS commands".
