Hard disk?
If you want to then yes.

But unfortunately there are some obscure setups out there that still run on very old hardware/software combinations, even in this day and age.
- Window 3.x glitch causes issues on french airport
- central heating system controlled by Amiga's

never mind what we might think of that  :D

Harddisks?

I'm sorry for accidentally editing your post (modify and quote are next to eachother), I restored your post as good as I could (finding the original by hitting back with the browser), please check.

Anyway:

Yeah, possible via the userport (various initiatives exist)

p.s. I really wonder what the c=64 has to do with win95 support.

Clarification for cp/m:

CP/M is still in use with Siemens Simatic S5 contol logics, since the original programming and debugging computers were build with CP/M and more modern ones are virtualising the CP/M. There is ofcourse 3rd party software, but it doesn't have "Siemens" tag in it so nogo for some. :P

PS. Rubber Mallet technique doesn't work if your system is running from bubble memory, SSD isn't a new innovation.  :D

In case anyone needs a real Win98 machine for some legacy systems, I am using with success for more then a year an industrial pc based on Advantech PCA-6743 board with ethernet, ISA slots and LPT port. It is not fast by today's standards, based on Vortex86DX, and actually not even a pentium but 486. BIOS is a little pain, but it works well for light tasks.

List of supported operating systems:
Windows XP Pro SP3 x86 (32 bit), Windows2000, Windows98, DOS 6.22, WinCE 5.0, WinCE 6.0, WES2009.
