... will it not bootup from the cd?

... perhaps its not a bootable cd (?)

... or you may have to enter your bios and alter the boot sequence to boot from cdrom first, change settings and save on exit.

... tap "Del" key @ bootup to enter your bios.

... here's a win95 bootable "iso" image Download (2.75MB)

... to burn and create the "iso" to cd click> Mirror 8 - Provided by ImgBurn

... download, save and install then select "burn image to disk"

... of course you'll need a cd writer and one blank cd

... once you've booted up with it swap over cd's

... sure you'll work it out!
