I know windows 98 as format on the cd not sure if 95 does if I'm right now you have no OS working on the system so if you put the 95 cd in and try to install it may tell you that the hard drive needs to be formated and do it But i'm not 100% sure on this. I can not find any artices on 95 doing this.

P.S. I tried using the 95 startup disk to run the Windows 95 setup off the cd but it didn't work.
1. I put the Windows 95 CD and startup disk in the computer. I ran CD-ROM support first, floppy support second.
2. Went to the "a:" prompt
3. Tried typing in "d:" to go to the CD-ROM
4. The system told me "invalid drive specification"
I am so close to making it work! What am I doing wrong?

when i created the main partition, it asked me if I wanted to use the maximum available size for the partition. I said yes, but the maximum size is only 2GB for some reason.
You need to use a newer boot disk. Old versions of fdisk had problems with drives over 8gb, and old versions of DOS couldn't recognize more that 2gb. The boot disk loads a version of DOS when it boots. You should have no problem using a Windows 98SE, or even ME boot disk.
You may have another problem with Win95. If you don't have Win95 OSR2, it will only support FAT16 file system. FAT16 file systems only support up to 2gb drives.
If you have OSR2 be sure to format using FAT32, then it'll support up to 2 terabytes. If you don't have OSR2, your only option is to partition your drives into segments smaller than 2gb, or upgrade to a newer OS.
