I wonder if you buy win95 now if they would give you a discount on a 
further upgrade though?

It will only update disks to fat32 that have sufficient space on them free
for it to complete the operation (there may also be a minimum size limit
too, not sure though).  Win98 is also noticibly faster than win95.  For
most newer machines 130 megs is chicken feed anyway.  4 gig hard disks
only cost like $200 these days.  If you have an older machine you'd
probably need a new disk controller card too for ~$30.
