I have installed win 95 in a 486DX2/66.
Things to watch for have as much RAM as you can get, a harddrive big enough the OS will take up just about 200mb of space and an IDE cd-rom

Can even install win98 provided you install it on ANOTHER machine then transfer the HD on the 486 box.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

95A will only use about 5-60Megs but you will need more space for other stuff of course.....I'd suggest MIN hdd size of 200Meg......and btw it WILL run with only 4 megs of ram but not very happily lol I' have also seen win98 running with only 16meg ram
