When I get some time I am gonna look at creating some sort of fix thingymabob package for 95 and 98.
Not sure about ME though, it's the devils own OS for dos games.
Mainly because MS bloody cut real dos out of it.
If I remember rightly though (i`ll have to check) it still takes notice of whats in ur autoexec.bat and moves it to the registry.
So a fix is quite possible, but dont hold ur breath
