This is mainly because of the "<drive>:\Program Files" directory, which is
used by both '95 and NT. If they are on the same partition, they use the
same directory for program files and programs with different versions
for '95 and NT may run into trouble.
And yes, you *really* should avoid installing them on the same
partition, because of that problem.
