Reinstalling Windows 95

  WGW 23:06 05 Apr 2004

I'd like to reinstall win95 on my old pc to clear out a lot of junk on it and freshen it up a bit. I last did this a couple of years ago with a bit of technical assistance and although I took some notes I didn't get every detail down and to be honest there seemed to be a few things I know I'd never remember about come this day.

For instance, I seem to remember having to unplug the CDRW drive after formatting c:, then plugging it in again. Why might this have been?

Also, I can recall doing format c:\q because I wrote zeros or something.

Does anyone know of a site that might help me out or know themselves what I'm banging on about? I'm not sure I do. :(

PS all you need to format is Format C: then do a custom install of 95

Thanks folks. Sounds as though my concerns haven't been necessary. I'll check out all of the advice given and tread forward warily.
