did you dd the complete disk, or juste the partition?

Use tomsrtbt (www.toms.net/rb, and find the tomsrtbt.raw
qemu -fda tomsrtbt.raw -hda win95.img -boot a
then try to do a
fdisk -l /dev/hda
if you see your partition, mount it. If everything is in place (the
boot flag, and so on) this is a win95 boot issue. (go to
www.bootdisk.com to join a boot floppy for win95)
If fdisk complains, the win95.img is not a harddisk image.
