I'm also going to get my Windows 95 boot disk from Bootdisk.com.
Also, I don't have two formatted floppy disks, where can I get them?

This repair method gives a fresh installation of Windows system files, while leaving all your Windows settings, programs and data intact. It's a very nice feature of Windows XP! You will need to run Windows Update and install all the patches and updates when completed.
As always, you should backup your important data before continuing.
1. To start this WindowsXP repair. First check that the first boot device in your system BIOS is set to the CD-ROM Drive.
If you are unsure, or don't want to enter the BIOS, then just test the computer by putting the CD-ROM in the drive and reboot your computer. If you see "Press any key to boot from CD....." then you don't need to alter your BIOS.
To find out how to access the BIOS please refer to your motherboard manual or the manufacturer of your computer. (The system bios can usually be entered on boot, usually by pressing the F1, F2, F8, F10 or DEL key. Make sure you save the settings before exiting.)
2. Insert your Windows XP CD and reboot you computer. A message "Press any key to boot from CD....." will appear, press the space bar to continue.
3. Setup will now inspect your computer hardware and configuration.
4. "To setup WindowsXP now press enter" will appear, press your Enter key. (Don't select "Repair WindowsXP using Recovery Console option, this just provides a DOS style command screen.)
5. Presss F8 to accept the license agreement
6. Now select the operating system you wish to repair, in most occasions there is only one, then just press "R" to continue.
7. Windows will guide you through the rest of the installation (repair) procedure.

I cannot do what you said because I do not have the Windows XP CD. Also, How do I know what version of Windows 95 is on my Windows 95 disc so I know which boot disk to download.
