I have a multi-boot PC, and put an LG CD-RW burner in it. Windows 2000
and 98SE see
the drive, but it doesn't show up in Windows 95C.

You may need to update your aspi drivers.

I don't recall if Win95 officially supports CD writers, but the drive should appear in Win95 as a CDROM drive. Win98 CD writer software might work with Win95.

The message < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >
from XXXX@XXXXX.COM contains these words:

If you look at the performance tab in system properties from the
win95osr2.5 session, I rather think you'll find it's using dos
compatability mode due to an IDE driver problem. I'm assuming you've
taken care of the potential system files conflict due to the system
folder default for both win9xes being the same (C:\Windows\).

BTW, is there any particular reason for installing win95osr2.5 _and_
it's *** ed up offspring (win98SE) along with win2k? About the only
downside to win2k over win9x is the loss of support for old dos based
games (and winXP is too high a price to pay for this support B4 anyone
foolishly suggests this).

If _I_ was going to consider dual boot on a system which obviously has
less than 1GB of ram, as yours must, I'd pick win95osr2.1 over that
piece of shit known as win98SE as the alternative to win2k (Microsoft's
best shot at a halfway decent OS).
