You're going to have to use some sort of proxy software for the PCs.  I am not familiar with apple, but maybe they have that already built into them.  Sygate is easy software to use, there are also a bunch of other options like wingate, MS proxy, etc,.

I think the problem comes when you have 2 PCs on the hub, they don't do a good job of managing a shared connection between themselves.

In order for Apple to be able to talk to a win95 pc I do believe you need the protocol DLC installed.

Goto Network Neighboorhood properties,
select Add, select protocol and then select microsoft DLC

hope this helps you
