    Hi there
    It should work fine on VMware -- here's a screenshot of mine working -- took 8 mins to install -- I remember when W98 was on a REAL machine it took nearly AN HOUR !!!.

    IE also works -- ensure you set it up to connect via a LAN otherwise it will look for a MODEM !!!!! (Wotizit ??). Not sure you'll get good rendering on some sites though -- although W98 works just fine.

    If you want to read NTFS files from W98 load this software (free) into your W98 VM


    DiskInternals NTFS Reader for Windows 95, 98, Me

    Have fun.

    I've also got Windows Me and Windows 95 OSR2 (That's the second edition of W95 rather like W98 SE) if anyone is interested.

    Office 97 (Pro) runs fine on these VM's BTW.

    Cheers

    Windows 95 OSR2 supports FAT32, right?
    Still got an OEM-copy of Windows 95 OSR2, with the book itself.

    Hi there
    I think it has to be the OSR2 OEM rel 2.1 version of W95.

    Availability of FAT32 Support in Windows 95

    Note that if you install Windows 95 on any VM except Hyper-V and Windows Virtual PC, make sure you disable Hardware acceleration on the particular VM, or the windows 95 may not boot (gets the IOS protection error).
