Installed Win95(b).  Did the reboot to configure.
PC starts to load Win95, then has divide overflow error before loading, and locks up.
Tried pressing F8 at startup.  No matter which option I select, it still locks up.
Tried step-by-step.  Asks to load double space. Y or N=lockup.
Can't even get a DOS prompt to change anything.
BIOS seems fine. HD detected perfectly.
I guess sending a bill to MicroSoft is out of the question...
