I get to where it is all loaded then ask me to remove the floppy disk and hit any key. When I do I keep getting abnort,retry, fail abort and retry don't do anything except repeat, but when I hit fail it brings me to a:/> and then I will type in C:win ,windows and windows95 and nothing.
Even tryed to hit F2,F4,F5, F8 and nothing I can get to dir and it shows it is loaded.

i would try reinstalling windows 3.11 from scratch...there may be a problem with one of the floppies that you used to install win3.11 with though.
try typing progman from the C:\ prompt and see if the program manager starts...
