Where can I find a free decompress for CD's?


My boss at work recently purchased 2 computers at auction. The hard drives were wiped clean of any information. I tried to load Windows 95, and also Windows 98. I had a computer smart person with me at the time, but now he is not here. He

told me before he left that I needed to get a hard disk decompression utility because the disks were compressed and that I needed to decompress them before I could get Windows to load. Can you give me any advise as to where I can download a disk decompression utility (preferrably free)?
