If starting with an empty system:
1. Partition your disk(s)
2. Install Win95 (in boot partition, FAT16)
3. Install WinNT (in another partition, NTFS will work)
4. Install Linux (in another partition or partitions).
5. Read NT+Linux How-to about using NT boot manager to boot all three
OSes. It's easy and works fine.
In general, you can use NT boot manager to dual boot Win95+Linux without
having NT installed... :-)
If you have Win95 and NT boot manager installed, you can then install
and uninstall NT and Linux in other partitions at will. I'm using this
way to check new distributions of Linux at home, always having a spare
partition for tests.
If you have already installed NT+95 and you don't have a spare
partition, i would suggest Partition Magic too... or a nice clean
