Networking, it needs to assume that it will be 'pretending' to be on a
REAL network (such as a LAN). Windows '95 will ask you then for a Computer
Name, Workgroup Name and Computer Description. Since these values are practically
irrelevant, I would suggest putting your first name as the computer name,
you last name as the workgroup name, and any description you like. (Of
course you don't HAVE to use these, you can use your own). After you complete
the install, start with step #2.
