Uninstalling Windows 95 is the easy bit, just boot up your PC from a startup floppy disk and format the C: drive.
If you don't have one, you can either make one now from within Windows 95, or download from here:

Boot your PC from the startup floppy-disk.

At the A:> prompt, type FORMAT C:
Press 'Y' for 'Yes' when it says "Are you sure?"

This will wipe everything off the C: partition so if you wish to save any of your files which are currently on there, save them to another drive before formatting!

To install Ubuntu, the web is awash with instructions, one such tutorial is here:

Actually if you burn an Ubuntu Live CD, which you will need to install Ubuntu, it will re-format the hard drive for you when you are ready to install.

Here are some links that are good for Ubuntu beginners, and the Ubuntu forum is great for asking for help too.




If I was at my home computer I could help walk you thru installation, but I'm at work now so my help is limited. Hopefully these links will help you get started. :)
