    have a good but old Pent.sys....am attempting to load Win 95 but CD-Rom is not doing what it normally did(after format, after copying the correct config and autoexec files, and after installing CD device drivers, the system does not place the system back at the A or C prompt that allows one to switch to the E prompt (normally D )..here the system freezes at the famous Windows (95 blue-sky screenn) ... To shorten the story, this current machine has two internal hard drives(normally i install when there is only one...[that means here there is a C and a D drive). when i go thru all the motions, the CD-Rom drive does not respond...my guess is that because it previously looked for D as its source drive, it is not responding because the D drive is used . how do i rectify this conflict and attempt to make either the internal the E drive or the CD-Rom the E drive?
    Again, i do have the original Win 95 boot disk, the original CD-Rom device drivers for the CD-Rom i am using......Please advise.....Thanks with a SMILE!
