Sorry you don't think it is true.  I don't have Win95 at home, but the
last few times I've installed/re-installed Win95, there has been at least
one PNP or Win-something-or-other that didn't work just right.  Had to go
find this that or the other driver.

You are probably using better hardware than I have at work and my friends
have.  I don't have any of the Win-whatevers or PNP anything.  Win95 may
be a 5 min install; just not on anything I've dealt with lately.

Has anyone had Win95 change your CMOS settings?
