No. Win32s is needed only for Windoze.

This would work if you were going from a 'doze machine to a 'doze
(provided the second already had Win32S installed). It does _not_
work - at least with 6.10 - when going from 'doze to '95: I tried
this because I had to install onto a '95 machine with no CD-ROM drive.
Turned out to be far easier to temporarily install a CD drive,
the install 6.11: the alternative was to install 6.10 off of the
19 million floppies.
I would recommend just installing from your SAS disks/CDROM. And if you
have to re-install anyway, go with 6.11 if you have lots of RAM
(more than just 16 MB) and lots of hard drive space. I haven't
tried it out myself, but what I have read in this newsgroup suggests
that version 6.12 is something to be avoided at all costs.
If you 16 MB of RAM or less and SAS is what you use most often,
consider dumping '95 and installing Win 3.11 instead. SAS 6.10
on a 8 MB and windoze is faster than it is with 16 MB and Win95.
Once you get up to about 32 MB, the speed advantage of Win 3.11
