I need to locate a very important draft email I was preparing when my registry nose-dived. I have to locate it under DOS because W95 just won't load. I use Word as my default editor and I kept default settings when installing O98. It's gotta be there. HELP.

The default storage location for draft e-mails is the "Drafts" folder within the .pst.

Well ... bad news.  Just discovered that you can't hit a .pst from DOS.  Sorry.  See below description from MS site:

A Personal Folder file, also known as a .pst, is the medium for storing Mail Application Program Interface (MAPI) objects created or received by Microsoft Outlook 98. Unlike a MS-DOS or Windows file system, the .pst  is only accessible by a MAPI aware program such as Outlook.

you can't open 95 in safe mode either? why don't you reinstall 95 over the top of itself...all of your old data will still be intact (unless you have a physical problem, like a bad hard drive) and it sounds like you will have to reinstall the system anyway if you want to use the computer again...

but yes, you can copy it to a floppy and import it on another computer
