i have just found out that windows 95 startup disk does not contain cdrom drivers how do i find the driver on my pc and add it to the startup disk

1. Use a win98 start up disc which will supply CDrom support. or

2. Go the whole hog if possible and install win98se rather than win95. or

3. Use a generic dos cd driver to get started win setup will rem this out during the setup process.
