Windows 95 to XP
 
Does anyone know of a way to install XP over windows 95? The only way i can think of getting anything on it is through floppy or ethernet port. it has no usb or cd/dvd drives..please help if possible :( Its a laptop. it has 2 gigs of memory..yeah..i know.it sucks. Ive seen posts about using floppy boot discs but as far as i know, it needs the disk sooner or later which i cant provide because theres no cd/dvd drive

Leave Win 95 on it as it is now, you will be wasting your time trying to upgrade it to Win XP...
