Transfering Win 95' to another PC

Hi, I have two older computers. The one is a 4/66i
Compaq with Windows 95', the other is a Compaq
386s with DOS. This is probably a dumb question,
but I'll ask it anyway. I was wondering if I
could somehow transfer Windows 95' from my 4/66i
to my 386s, or would I have to buy the Win 95'

Since hardware is SO different, I think you should abandon this idea and go for a 95 purchase. Besides, if the 386s name means a 386SX processor, you cannot install 95 on that machine.
