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.
