Anyone got a copy of Windows 95 laying around?

I need it for a VERY old Toshiba laptop for a specific purpose.

Laptop is a 486DX66 with 48mb ram and has a 320mb hard-drive. Should run 95 ok.

FUCK Canada

I think I've got a stack of floppies in my attic.

However the heat might have destroyed them by now.

That machine is a Windows 3.11 machine at best. Windows95 will run like ass on that if it will even install on a sub-pentium machine.

I never said it would be fast. I have this laptop specifically for tuning software for my car so it has a dedicated purpose. The tuning program will not run under XP. If that were the case I would install the software on my Dell Inspiron 710M

And yes it WILL run Windows 95. Been there done that.

To specifically answer your questions, I'm sure some of us have it laying around. However, it might be easier to look for it on Ebay, or other options.
