My linux box has a dyfunct (partially working) Win95 partition, and I
have access to a Win98SE box.  Both are reasonably recent, and I can try
extracting an original Win95 version from the cabs on the local CAB
archives (which come from the CD).

What are the specific filenames again?

Oh, and do you want them compressed in any way (i.e. leave them, zip
them, or tar/gz them), and do you want them on list or off?  Note, that
I'll only do this once, so that means that if you want an archive, I'd
have to send them to the list.
