The easiest way is to mount an ISO of Windows as a CD and let it boot, then follow your nose.
If you only have a CD/DVD you can mount the physical device in the virtual machine, but I reckon it's easier to create an ISO from the CD and mount that.

I believe that install CDs for Win95, 98, and ME were not bootable. You had to use a boot floppy which contained a driver for the CDROM and then put the install CD in the drive and type "setup".
The following site has boot image files for Win 95, 98, and ME
Download the one you want, burn it to a CD, put it in the optical drive and select that drive in the Virtual Box start screen. Then, run FDISK and FORMAT on the virtual drive, reboot it and put the Win 95, 98, or ME CD in the optical drive and run setup.
I have used this technique to create DOS and FreeDOS virtual drives.
