Teera,

Have I understood the following correctly:

Windows 2000 works OK but doesn't import the pbx file
Windows 95 doesn't load after you have setup a dual boot system for Windows 95 and Windows 2000?

What happens when you try to import the pbx file?

Is Windows 95 on the C Drive and is the C Drive using the FAT File system?  If the C Drive is NTFS then Windows 95 won't work again.

I've not tried it that way. It might work.

Backup as much data as you can first and be prepared to start from scratch if it doesn't work.

If you want a dual boot system have the following:

C: Drive as Win95 on FAT (or FAT32 if 95 supports it)
D: Drive as 2000 on FAT or NTFS (Windows 95 doesn't recognise NTFS, and unless it supports FAT32 it won't recognise that either).
