Would it possible to set up Linux as my basic OS on an Athlon machine and then to use Wine or Corel Linux to run Windows 95/98 as well as Windows apps on the same drive?  SPBLISW

You could set the system up for dual boot (see http://howto.tucows.com/LDP/HOWTO/Installation-HOWTO.html & http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/mini/Linux+Win95.html) for more details. You could also use Wine for a partial windows emulation, or use VMware (not free, but works really, really well), see http://www.vmware.com.
