As I type, I'm downloading Linux Mint 3.0 on my main system, and formating an old 6.5G Fujitsu drive on my "test" rig, in the hope of loading a legit M$ 95 which was passed on to me after someones system died.
As well as the OS, I got Money 98, 2 disc Encarta 98, M$ Works 4.5, M$ Golf for 95 and 3D Moviemaker also for 95. These are all in the original cases that have COA's, silver strips, and even watermarks on them!! Sadly, the only one without the front cover is the 95 disk itself.
Which leads me to a question: Is there a way for me to find out the original code for the OS CD?
I know that for XP there's "Rock XP" for finding out the code. Is there something similar for 95?
Just so we understand: 2 weeks ago, I loaded a brand-new XP Pro onto an 80G Seagate drive (registered) that sits in my 3200+ AM2 rig in a Vantec caddy with an LCD screen. It's the biz! In the same kind of caddy I am running Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) on another 80G Seagate. That's the biz too! It would be really nice to get this legit 95 up and running on either a 533 Celeron (A small desktop. ready to go), or a 900 Athlon that I have some older graphics cards to try out on. Oh!! Loads more questions!!
Just so you know I'm not here after Cracks!!
Any advice would be much appreciated.
EDit* I typed the code from one of the software boxes and it's loading!!
