I am booting Windows95 from at Fat32 partition

Setup will not run because it is looking for a FAT bootable
partition.

Can I get around this problem?

PieterC,
I'm assuming the following. You have created a Fat32 partition on your hard disk using a Win95B disk. Are you trying to install Windows 95B(OSR2) onto this partition? Have you made this new partition active in Fdisk? After creating this Fat32 partition, did you format the partion with a format /s? Did you copy over the cabs to the Fat32 partition, then trying to run Setup.exe?

I stated that I am already booting up on that partition, which means that the Fat32 is a bootable system partition.

setup will not run from anywhere, including from DOS prompt.

The partition was created with Partiton Magic, because I am
findign out that Windows 95 (vs B)  does not install itself
on FAT32.
