    If you are trying to install Windows 95 from floppy i believe you just type setup and it will start the install procedure.

    Or to boot Windows installed on the C:\ drive from Dos type:

    C:

    cd Windows

    win

    Hope that helps, its been years since i've done that so i might not remember it exactly how its done.

    So you are trying to install Windows 95 yes?

    If so you do have a Windows 95 install disc, and not a Windows 95 boot disk correct?

    A boot disc will only boot in to MS dos, an install disc will allow Windows 95 to be installed.

    It's a STARTUP disc. That problubly why. Guess I will just have to ask a family member for the old credit card and hit up ebay or amazon for an install or boot.
