I need to make a bootable windows 95 floppy with files on it for cd support
for a backpack cd player, I luckily found those files but can not get them
to install. After I get them intalled how do I intall windows 95? I got my
grandson a laptop for Christmas and I got a new copy of 95 and of Works
becase part of 95 was missing. I made the mistake of formatting the drive
this morning and loosing the cd support. I guess I should have given him
mine but he is only 10 and lost his bb gun I got him last year after 3
weeks!

All help appreciated!

First, does the BackPack CD player operate thru the parallel port, USB port, or
otherwise? USB support is pretty shaky in Windows 95, and it exists only in
Windows 95B and 95C OEM versions.

Once you've made a bootable floppy that can access the BackPack CD player, boot
the system with it, change to the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive, enter the
command SETUP and go. This should get you through the initial steps of the Win
95 install. To complete the setup, you will need to modify the CONFIG.SYS and
AUTOEXEC.BAT used by Win 95 to start itself up. Each of these files needs to
contain the same commands and directives as those for the CD-ROM drive on the
bootable Win 95 CD... Ben Myers

See if one of the boot disk images at www.bootdisk.com will do the job.

You may need to download drivers from the manufacturer of the CD drive.

I had one of these many years ago and saved the contents of the boot floppy.
I will email you a zipped file called Backpack.zip to the email address
shown in this newgroup post. Unzip and put the files onto a bootable floppy
then boot. If successful, the CDROM will be on drive D:\.

I'll send you an image of a bootable floppy with the files I sent you along
with the utility to create the floppy from the image. It works in XP2.

You can also go to www.bootdisk.com to obtain programs which can be used to
create bootable floppies for Windows 95 (A, B, & C), 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP.
