Isn't a DX4 a 486 machine? or is this a pentium machine??

If he already has Win95 on it then why now does it need more memory before it can reinstall??

Why are you reinstalling Win95? Is there any reason why you cannot format the HD and make a clean install? OK if you have programs installed that you cannot reinstall then before you run the setup program hit the (Ctrl,Alt,Delete) and use the end task option to close everything listed there except Explorer then try the setup again
