Sounds to me like Windoze 95 is broke! I do all that you mention
below using CT under IBM's OS/2 Warp, which is also a 32-but operating
system. And it has a boot manager that times out after 30 seconds
so if you don't change anything, it will automatically boot the
last operating system used.

Also keep in mind the speed at which you need to log when running
lots of stations.  There is no time for clicking the mouse under those
circumstances, so I prefer the direct keyboard input, regardless of
what operating system is used.
