What kind of VM do you want to create? With 2GB of RAM, I wouldn't even attempt it.

You can easily Google the image (.iso) you need, though you need to be careful where you take them from. You can also Google an install guide.

Installing Windows 3.1 for instance:

Installing Windows ME:

No I'm telling you to be careful in your research, and that is because I never looked for them. As far as I'm concerned, I still don't think it's legal to host Windows image if they aren't hosted by Microsoft themself, so I won't post public links to them for that reason.

Your computer doesn't have enough specs (hardware) to handle virtualisation at a decent level. Also, please keep in mind that we're all volunteers here. Some users might not know enough to assist you with your questions/issues and some of them might simply be busy and cannot reply to this thread right now. Some of them are also asleep probably (we all live in different timezones). And yes, install all the drivers required during the install.

I'm not telling you that your computer won't be able to run Windows 95 in a VM, I'm telling you that obviously your system will suffer from slowness if you do virtualisation because of the low spec'd hardware it have.

Also, please stay polite, BleepingComputer is a family friendly website.

why would it be slow if it already has so many resources to use (windows 95)

Because virtulisation drivers, services, etc. put quite the strain on a system. And with 2GB of RAM and an Intel Pentium E5300 CPU, you must be feeling that strain. Did you create and setup your VM yet?
