It's not really part of win95, it is only part of the oem release.  There 
is no way present win 95 users will be able to get until the nex major 
release of windows.  

By the way, from what I have heard there is really no reason to use it 
unless you want a huge gigabyte sized partition, which I personally don't 
like.  There is no speed improvement in vfat32
