Actually... when you install linux and lilo, it will ask you if you wanna boot another OS(Win95), then you will be asked to type in the keyword for it.  when you start up, you will see a word "LILO" at boot time.. if you don't do anything, it will boot linux.  However, if you press
shift or tab, the word "boot" will show up.  Type the keyword you just assigned for Win95 from linux installation then it will boot windows95.......
this case System commander is not necessary

A better solution is a $10 shareware program called DocsBoot+ ftp://ftp.flashnet.it/mirror4/hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/dos/dbp040b.zip which will automatically recognize disks and partitions with no setup. It boots the computer into a menu driven interface, and also allows for default booting into any given partition or floppy upon timouts, saves, verifies, and restores CMOS settings, and a bunch of other stuff. Nicest thing is that it doesn't require a reformat or any repartitioning, and automatically finds and recognizes new drives and operating systems when the system boots.
