I guess it is possible, but anything else must be disregarded. Do a clean install ( for Win95 the FAT-partition should be First Disk First Primary partition). I would suggest minimal installation at first. After the first installation, change temp-directory to another partition and from Control Panel- System -Vrtual Memory, change swapfile also to another partition. Otherwise the equation (disk space>< space that win95 requires) might be impossible.

After You've moved temp-dir and swapfile the You could install more win95 parts.

hibuck2,

To use Microsoft Windows 95 you need:

4 MB. (8 MB recommended)
Typical available hard disk space required: 30-40 MB. (actual requirements will vary based on features you choose to install)

Note:
System requirements for Windows 95-based programs may exceed system requirements described above for Windows 95.

Install procedure varies, depending on the type of media used.
(Tell me if your copy of Win95 is on floppies or CD-ROM.)

Regards,
Ralph
