Windows 95 can be installed on any computer with at least a 386dx processor and no less then 8 megs memory. However you want to consider this configuration as it would be extremely slow and unusable.

Yes delete or rename all the win.com files you find on the hard drive and then the full version will work. Now very important, be sure to install to the same directory that the old windows is in.
example
c:\windows
and not
c:\windows.000 or simular
this way the full version will act like upgrade.
if you need more then let me know.

This is only for educational purposes.
