Does any one know of a reliable way (or software that will allow you to copy from CD to floppies in the correct order for install from floppy-old hat I know genuine reason for asking
whats a floppy lol
you could try win zip which can span floppy disks.Why do u want to do this?
deadneat,I want to get an OS onto a laptop with no CD rom drive
is there no way of downloading 98 on floppys from somewhere , yes i know , software theft and all that but i doubt if you could buy them anywhere
SGT Barnes,That would be the key to this, I know in days gone bye you could get WIN95 on floppy, dont know about WIN98
When Windows was supplied on floppies the discs were formatted in a special way so they could each hold 1.7mb of data. This is the size of each cab file on a CD. Unless you can find a way to format floppies in this way it would seem to be an impossible task.This was deliberate to prevent copying.
alcudiathanks for that, seems i have had it on this one
i used to work for a government dept. and when we had win98 , it was on floppies , so they do exist but i dont know if that was a consession for us because we didnt have a cd drive at the time
