Would it be possible to install it onto that hard drive in another machine and transplant it back into the laptop after the install is complete?

Only have this one laptop to fool around with so I can't put the hard drive into another and install it there. Hmm...

As for installing windaz 95, you said that you want to install it *back* onto the laptop, what did you try to do that didn't work out?? And maybe you could try, as a last resort buying an external floppy, don't get an external cd drive, cuz I think you would notice the speed difference from an internal cd-rom, but as for the floppy, it goes so slow, that you probably wouldn't notice the difference. Oh, and one more thing, since you already have a floppy, you might just wanna buy an external one from your local shop (best buy, circuit city, whatever) and install windaz, then "change your mind" and take it back

Today in school someone came to me with this laptop and told me to fix it, of course I said Ok. So all during school (I go to vocational school) time was spent trying to figure out a way to put Windows 95 on a 133Mhz, around 30 Megs of RAM Compaq laptop, this being the first laptop I have dealt with. Since this is not my laptop, I can only put Windows 95 on it.
Tomorrow I will scurry around the school looking for an external floppy or CD-Rom drive. Or I will just go down the street to Best Buy and borrow one of theirs for an hour.

I agree... copy the whole CD to the HD. Jin-Rai told me that he had that exact same problem b4, and that is what he did.
the easiest way to do it would be to copy the CAB files over from the CD and run setup from from the HDD.

Today I when around my school looking for a external drive of some sort, I found an external zip drive “It will have to do” I thought to myself. So after installing the Zip drive we copied all the *.CAB files in the win95 CD to the hard drive and it worked!
Thanks for all your help
