There was a full version 95 that had about 30 floppies. There was an upgrade with about 13 disks but I think you can use your 3.11 disks as verification for the update. Ebay may have them.

Why, for the love of God, would you want to put Win95 on your computer!?!?!?!

The retail floppy disk version of Windows 95 came on 13 DMF formatted floppy disks, while OSR 2.1 doubled the floppy count to 26.
DMF was a format used by Microsoft that allowed 2mb of data to fit on a 1.44mb floppy.
I havn't been able to locate any floppy versions, maybe if there is a computer club in your area, a member may still have a copy, I diced mine many years ago.

All you need to do is boot it to dos or any version of command line up to 95. Copy the files on the hard drive from cd mounted on lan shared drive. Then install.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
