Its not too hard.
If you have a Windows95 Upgrade then just run "setup.exe" from the CD (or floppy 1) and follow the directions on-screen.
If you don't have an upgrade version then its a little tricky but still easy. Exit Windows 3.1 and rename the windows folder to win3_1 or some other name of your choosing (this is for safty incase you can't get Win95 working) or "deltree c:\windows". Once there is no Windows directory you can go ahead and install Win95 from the CD.
