Windows 95 on floppies. I havent seen that in years!
95 original was the only edition that shipped on floppies.
I think it came on 9.

To start the Windows 9x setup without running scandisk type

"setup /is" (without the quotes) at the A: prompt
In the beginning there was the command line.

It actually used 13 DMF floppy disks.

Windows 95 has been released on both floppy disks and on CD-ROM, as some computers at the time did not include a CD-ROM drive. The floppy disk version of Windows 95 came on 13 DMF formatted floppy disks, excluding additional software that some releases might have featured, such as Internet Explorer. Microsoft Plus for Windows 95 was also available on floppy disks.

MS stopped assisted support for Windows 95 on January 1, 2002.

Dont discount the possibility of a hard drive that is failing.
That would explain why scandisk does not run during the install.

Could be bad floppies too. After all, they are 10 years old.

Try SETUP /IS
In the beginning there was the command line.
