Extract to a floppy disk, your hard drive, or burn files to a cd. Start>Control Panel>System>Device Manager, then click on the audio device (it should have a yellow caution symbol). Click properties, select the Driver tab, click "Reinstall Driver", and let win95 find them... if it can't, just type in the path to the location you extracted/copied them to.
