What is use windows95?

Question

I recently upgraded PCs from a Gateway P2 266 running Win95 to a Dell P4 3.0GHZ running Win XP. I was able to transfer most of my files, and some programs, from old to new using the transfer wizard in WinXP using a PC to PC serial cable. However, one of my favorite programs, a PC telephony program with phone, Fax, and phone book capabilities, called Megaphone by Cypress research, could not be transferrred. I have the install disc, and tried to install it on the new PC, but got a message saying the program would only work in Win95. I tried to find drivers in the driver wizard in XP, but to no avail. I looked at the Windows update site on the web, but found nothing there regarding this product or driver updates. I looked for Cypress on the web, but found nothing- I presume they were either bought or went belly-up. Is there anything you can suggest to help me with this problem? Do you have a favorite program with the above noted functionality?

Thanks for your help in advance,

Brian
