the embed tag

I'm planning a multimedia CD wrote in HTML which is simply a slide show of images and animations. This CD will be for windows 95/98NT only.
My question: How well supported is the embed tag on the windows platfrom? If I embed a AVI file into my page, will all windows browsers be able to see it?
If not is there a different more suported way to display a avi in a html document under windows?

As long as the default browser is IE4, Netscape3 or above, it should work.  If the user has something else set it might not.  Since you are going for Win95/98/NT only; it shuld be possible to write a code that will open it in IE instead of anything else.  Win95/98 are almost guarenteed to have IE installed, NT is more problematical.  It is possible, but not common, to install NT with no bowser.
