hey bill.

i have an old computer with win95 on it, also the original win95 installation CD (win95 version in My Computer -> properties, Hebrew edition).

i can't find the files you mentioned: bootcat.bin, bootimg.bin in C: or in the Win95 or Windows folders, or on the installation CD.

let me know (PM or email) what files exactly you need.

i am not sure that win95 disks were all bootable... they dont need to be....

Just boot from a floppy(win98 or me startup disk with CD ROM support is good), goto the CD drive and goto the win95 folder. Run the setup.exe file and you're set.

you may want to format the drive 1st depending upon your situation

A:\> e:
E:\> cd win95
E:\WIN95>dir *.exe
Volume in drive E is WINDOWS95
Volume Serial Number is EE1A-8EBB
Directory of E:\WIN95
