Actually you should not be able to construct such a packet with the ping
program at all. The reason that you can do this under Windows '95 is that
it was (hold tight) a bug in the W95 ping utility. "Was" yes because even
more unbelievable they've fixed it in later versions of '95..

You'll have to downgrade your windows '95 (if such a thing is possible) ;)
