I have an AMD 100 with 16 Megs of Ram and 1.5 Gig. HD. I am Tring to reload win95 from scratch and on this newly foratted HD and it starts and gives me a General Protection Fault. I do know that this system had a power surge go through it. Is it possible that the Ram got messed up somehow?

It is possible the RAM, or some control chips on your motherboard are fried.  Sounds likely.  I would remove all extra cards from your PC (modems, net cards, sound cards).  Then try the install again.  If this doesn't work, you may be in trouble. . .

How many times have you tried to reinstall Windows. Try again.

This should fix all problems. In dos do a scandisk and check the HDD physical sectors. If there are no problems found re-install Win95 using the install /d . That will re write any bad Win95 files and should give you a new clean win install. There is also a shareware program that will check you system boardd for some errors (including ram) called amidiag.exe. This program was written for AMI bios', I have no idea if this will work with other bios'.
