floppy disk drive ?

Friend has been given a dinasour laptop running win 95. It has p.point, Excel & Access but is missing Word !

So is there anyway to get Word onto a Floppy to install onto a laptop or anyway to get word installed onto this laptop ?

not got a CDROM and no External CD Rom.

Would one of them USB Stick things do it. How big is word if I was to copy the prgramme file to a USB Stick to transfer it ?

Careful - Windows 95 doesn't fully support USB, so test one of those "stick things" before you buy it. If your machine has enough go and USB ports you could upgrade to 98SE.

I seem to remember Word coming on floppies a long time ago. Or was it Wordstar? It was certainly a lot of floppies!!

thanks for all the imput here, I will have to look into each one. Like the sound of the Laptop HDD in a PC via convertor cable.
