  1. I HAVE XP INSTALLED, BUT i WANT TO BUY SOFTWARE NEEDED TO INSTALL 95. I have old games that will not work even with compatability (i tried). So how can I install 95, just buy the software and it will do it itself?

    Please help,

    Thank you

    Windows 95 will screw up your XP installation or won't install at all. You have to clean up the system and start over, installing Win95 first and XP afterwards.

    Another solution would be to install a virtual machine a la Bochs or VMWare or whatever and run Win95 inside that.

    Thank you, I will go and buy a copy of 95 or 98 and get started.
