windows 95 does not have support for cdrom support on the win95 startup disk. When you formatted you deleted your dos cdrom drivers.

If you have the install disk for the cdrom, just install the drivers from the a prompt.

You can make a win98 startup disk from any win98 computer, just go to start/settings/control panel/add remove programs/startup disk tab, put a floppy in the drive and hit create disk.
If not, go to www.bootdisk.com and download a startup disk. Once the file is downloaded, place a floppy disk in the drive, run the downloaded file and it will create the startup disk on the floppy.

Leave the disk in the drive and reboot the machine. From the menu choose with cdrom support.

Once at the a prompt go to your cdrom drive(note, the drive letter will be one higher than normal, if it was D it will now be E, if it was E it will now be F. Type D: and press enter, or F whichever the case maybe.

Once at the Cdrom prompt, put the win95 cd in the drive and type setup.

Your posting from a working computer now, either make the disk on it or download one.

Any win98 pc will do to create the startup disk, then put the created disk in the other machine and start it up

If you mean the machine your trying to install on, just put the startup disk in the drive and start it up, choose with cdrom support. Navigate to the cd drive, don't let the ram drive that the startup disk installs confuse you, that's what makes your cdrom drive letter move up one letter. Then with the cd in the drive just type setup.

For making the startup disk, just navigate to the location, put the floppy in the drive, and hit the create disk button.
