thresher_shark,
How do you know he can boot to the hard drive?
How do you know he has Win95?
To save confusion, answers like that are better submitted as a comment.

chicogo,
You will need at a valid partition on the hard drive in question.
Boot using a system floppy and execute the operating system's format command.
Let me know if you need more details.

Yes you're right, I do need to think about the answer more before I submit it.  It's too bad there isn't a withdraw answer option or something like that.

I'll try to be more careful in the future.
