I have computer running WIN2000. I have several old applications running on WIN95 which cannot run on WIN2000. Is it possible to start computer from CD in WIN95 with file allocation table FAT32 to use those old application?

Good news: You can set up your system to 'dual boot' - ie: have both Win95 and Win2k installed and choose between them on startup.

Bad News: You would need to have your HDD set up as Fat32 and install Win95 before Win2k, so if you want to do that, you will have to copy off all your data and start again.

You can boot the computer using a Win95 boot floppy but you will not be able to do much without using the Hard Disk, which Win95 will not be able to recognise while it is formatted as NTFS. I believe you can convert the disk back using something like Partition Magic but it is probably best to just start over.
