We recommend doing this on Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 with an older PC.
Install MS-DOS 5, then change DOS=HIGH to DOS=LOW in CONFIG.SYS.
Copy the installation files to a folder on the HDD including the subfolders(we use \WIN95) and then run SETUP from that folder.

Display Driver
If you are using Microsoft Virtual PC 2004, during the setup, select Customize and under the System Settings set the Display Adapter to XGA then continue setup.
Do NOT select VGA or S3 with Microsoft Virtual PC.
