The current version of Mathematica for Microsoft Windows (2.2.3)
should work under Windows 95 provided that you have TCP/IP
installed. You do not need a network card, but the software must be 
installed. See the Release Notes for further information.

TCP/IP is required for the MathLink connection between the Front 
End and the Kernel. You will need to follow the instructions in
the User's Guide for your version of Mathematica for adding the 
TCP protocol in the Kernel Options dialog.

I hope this helps.
