    If you create a partition for windows, e.g. by using QTparted in knoppix, and then install windows on that partition. Warning: this will wipe your linux bootloader (GruB or LiLo - I'm not sure which one knoppix uses), so you will have to install it, you might want to create a boot floppy for knoppix before you install windows. INSTRUCTIONS on how to get GrUb back after installing windows.

    Yeah. Create the partition for Windows 95, install it. Then you either use the LiveCD or bootdisk to boot up Knoppix again and run Grub or Lilo.
