Problem installing Windows 95 OSR 2.5

I am trying to install Windows 95 OSR 2.5 and running into a problem. I am using a Windows 98 boot disk because I cannot find a Windows 95 disk image. When I run setup, I get an error: Windows setup requires 7340032 bytes of disk space on your c: drive. The drive is set up with 251 M of space, and Microsoft recommends between 50 and 55 M of space, so space should not be a problem. If I am using the wrong boot disk, does anyone know where I can find another? If not, does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

abk4523 , strange, did you do make partition on newly created disk? anyway, i remember when i tried to do same thing i get wrong ms-dos version error, and setup never proceed, so i did download dos 6.22 alone and it worked, but you can find win95 bot floppies on site called winworldpc (no link due to copyrights :) ).

I did make the partition on a new disk. I'll try Winworldpc for the boot disks and let you know. Thanks for the help.

Looks like it was the boot disk. Win98 does not have the format command.

This command is in the file EDB.CAB
