Hello All !  I have just re-formatted my computers hard drive.  Now, I want to re-install Windows95, but, Windows95 is on a CD and my machine only has dos now; so, it does not see a CD rom drive.  My question is, how do I go about getting the computer to see/configure the cd rom drive?  I do not have the specifics of the CD-rom, so, if there is a generic ide setup/driver, that would be just fine.

Thanks in advance,
Everett

Find someone that has windows98 and make yourself a startup disk.
 
here's how:(Go to start Menu> Settings> Control Panel> Add/Remove  programs> Make startup disk.)

Just install the Floppy into your computer and turn it on.  The Startup disk will find your CD-rom.
