I have multiple machines and versions of 95.  I must have taken my upgrade disk to work and only have the "Installation for NEW machines" disks at home.  How can I reinstall pieces and bypass the meassage that says this installation is only for new machines?

Click on Start, Click on Settings, Click on Control Panel.  Double Click on Add/Remove Programs.   Click on Windows Setup and then select the options you want to add/remove.  When you do this, make sure your Windows 95 CD-ROM is in the CD-ROM drive as you will need it.  This routine should bypass the message you are asking about.
