Tinkering, in an ignorant but happyish way as I do with operating systems and old computers, I realised that playing a Win95 game on an old, tiny but beautifully proportioned Toshiba Portege wasn't the satisfactory experience it could be. So I downloaded MS Virtual machine onto this beast of a gaming desktop monster and tried to load Win95 into it. Not a chance. Fdisk and format of the virtual C disc was fine, and so was the floppy install, but then suddenly everything stops when the CD drive (and all the others) doesn't make an appearance. Linux was OK, and so was DOS 6.22, but neither of them need to use the CDROM drive to get installed (.iso is good for Linux) - Win95 needs a startup floppy and a CD, and for whatever reason, I can't get the CD drive to be recognised (it's also "Drive I:\, as there's a few other drives scattered around , but the virtual drive doesn't see anything except A/B floppies). The web search of the obvious words gave me an expert who makes no mention of this problem whatsoever. Anyone?
