 Compatibility with Prior Windows Versions?

Can VB.Net be used to write fairly simple programs that
could run on prior versions of Windows?

Some of my target machines still have Windows 95...

I tried to install a test program today and was not
successfull because the location had Win NT 4.0, but only
service pack 5, and the Windows installer apparently
needed Service Pack 6 or higher....

Anyway to do the old .exe and a VB***.dll which I could
load manually....?

.NET is supported on Windows 98 an later.  Windows 95 is not supported.
