If you have win95 already installed on the hdd, then you'll have to use a 3rd party software like partition magic (PCQuest) to shrink and move the fat/fat32 partition to the end of the disk. Solaris MUST have the first 1k block on the hdd to install the boot manager. If you don't do this you risk loosing your win95 data when you go to install. If you do not like the boot manager (as it is kind of slow) you can use lilo or System Commander. I have linux, WinNT4, & solaris on my notebook (Dell Latitude LM, I replaced the hdd with a 8GB one) using System Commander to boot Solaris and lilo (lilo is booting WinNT and Debian linux)
I hope this helps out.

I've installed Solaris 2.6_x86 on my PC. Solaris installs a bootmanager so you can choose which partition to boot from (Solaris or Win95).
