95 vs 98 shouldn't matter. I would check your bios setup to see if you have the option to boot to IDE 0 or IDE 1, and if you do, you can slave it off your drive. I'd use the MASTER/SLAVE settings rather than CS, unless CS is what you are using now, then you may have to fiddle with it and test which one works. Otherwise, you can set it up as master and disconnect yours. Now keep in mind it's going to try to find hardware that it is connected to your 98 machine. So I would disconnect any printers, etc. and when the 95 drive starts finding new hardware, try to cancel out as much as you can. You'll probably have to install the display adapter to be able to see what you are doing, otherwise you may end up with only 16 colors, if you can work with that, it is better, but if not, install the one for your machine, then remove it after you have the software installed via device manager, it'll probably shut down right away, and that should be no problem......just don't let it restart again.
