Files needed by WIn95 UPGRADE

I need to reinstall win95 on a workstation but do not have DOS or WIndows 3.11 installed, nor do I have the setup disks.  All I have is a system boot disk and Win95 Upgrade CD-ROM.  I remeber from my Uni days that it's possible to create some "fake" files such as Win386.exe to trick the Win95 setup program into thinking that Win311 is installed, but can't remeber what files I need to "create".

Any ideas??

rquickenden,

You need to have 2 files created, one is win.com and the other is win386.exe one must be in the windows directory and the other in the windows system directory.
Make a folder by typing md windows
then type
cd\windows
now type md system
win.com must be in the windows folder
and win386.exe must be in the system folder

If you need more then let me know.
