go to run setup on a newly formatted drive and get this error "Windows setup requires 7340032 bytes available on your c: drive" but this drive is newly formatted and is a 2.5 gig drive.  Is it something to do with my partitioning or what?

Please let me know more details info such as ;
1.) C:drive full partition, or u have more than 1 partition C:/D:/E:...
maybe u C:drive not enough space ?

Recommend to use FDISK check the size of C:drive and whether there is any other drive such as D:...

if C:drive not enough space, then delete partitions, and recreate as again for full 2.5GB.

Are you using Win95a or Win95b???
Just found out that a will not use a fat32 drive so you will have to fdisk the drive again, disable large disk support and make 2 partitions.

Run Delpart and remove all partions or go for fdisk .Then install Win95 in your primary partition.
