You can mount a file image of the right size formatted as FAT, as a
floppy. If the compressed file fits on it:

",hMkeIHC" cached by Windows 9M, root entries 224, sectors 2880 (volumes
<=32 MB), sectors/FAT 9, sectors/track 18, serial number 0x46596503,
label: " ", FAT (12 bit), followed by FAT
Another possibility is download the file from the net, but the net being
just your own computer, not internet. You run a web server or an ftp on
your host and reach it from the virtual machine. Of course, I already
have apache running, so that would not be a problem for me.
Win95 also has a telnet client (not ssh).
However, I would try with Wine again: Simon Becherer has commented on
the command line you should try.
