local built Pentium inside with DOS then 95

That can't be correct - a "Pentium" with DOS then '95?

Pentiums came out before Windows 95, and were typically used with Windows 3.11 running on top of MS-DOS 6.2.

Many early ones also had a floating point bug and Intel intially shot themselves in the foot by saying they weren't going to replace them except for people who could prove they needed the accuracy. That went over like a screen door on a submarine.

I remember the bug, their response was quite amusing. I didn't realise it was pre-'95 though.
