I dont really know if I can help you or not but my first idea is: Mma
ver 2.2.4 (student edition) is functionally identical to ver 2.2.3
that requires a FPU; 486sx is without FPU; maybe it's only a silly
idea..... I don't know ;but maybe the lack of FPU make Mma not work
correctly. Also in Win95 there is no emulator calling, like threre was
in Win 3.1 by win87em.dll so....................
However you have the right to contact Wolfram at this address: 
student-support at

when you discover something ; well let me know: I'm just curious to
know the exact reason why It doesn't work! :-))
