What exactly is your problem?

You need two or more spare partitions (create one with partitionmagic or FIPS if
needed), a small one for swap and one or more bigger ones.

Then install Linux (and ignore that you have Win95 installed). Don't install
LILO for now, but use a boot disk. This should get you started.

You can install LILO for multi-boot later.

Please come back to this list with any specific questions you have.
Also read the installation instructions on the debian web page, they are not
too long.
