you can create a bootable CD with XP (pull the harddisk from the old machine
and connect to the XP to transfer the files for win95)
note this will not make a disk like your original win95 CD (no autostart)
whether your win95 machine can boot to a CD ...can't say (best way would be
floppy as Ben suggested) >> Stay informed about: Install Windows 95
