Spoof, I hate to tell you this, but whatever computer you are trying to reinstall Windows 95 on needs to be replaced. It's simply too old, and nothing about it is supported, and it's really not worth your effort. You can get a brand new computer for less than $400 US.

//Added note -- I'm going to take a stab in the dark that you can't get it copied to the new drive is because your BIOS doesn't support drives that large. The older computers would only support 2GB partitions and unless you have a 3rd party BIOS software like ezBios, there's no way you can make it work on today's drives.
