    I've been given a never-used, licensed installation disc of this OS, and I am thinking of running in a virtualbox as a sort of project, mainly for fun, partly for education. I have, in the past few years tried a few OSs in this way (Linux mint, Ubuntu etc) so should be ok, but what I am hoping for are some best recommendations/favourites for software to install, and, if possible, any other advice you might have, please.
    Thank you.

    Hmm...do I use 95a or b boot disk, I think only b will work, if I understand correctly? Or doesn't it matter which you use? And thanks also Cudni, I could do
    a few games, but I was going to try and learn a bit more about security software, something tells me McAfee firewall was very good(maybe still is?), hoping to learn a little about firewalls, and maybe take it from there.
