Must it be 3.11? I can offer Windows 95 on 12 floppies if that'll do.

If Jim Thing's Win95 is not suitable, 3.11 is available on eBay....

Hi stephen0205: I do not think the British Museum will have a one of these rare Windows 311's as there are not many left. It just happens that I have one of these rare fossils just waiting for a new home outside the museum.

If your drive is formatted and without a Doss then I just happen to have that as well.

Contact me using the yellow envelope next to my name and we can discuss this rare find.

regards. Audeal

What Ports do you have?

Probably PS2 and a Printer Port. Any others?

I have the floppies for Windows 3.11 - there are 10 disks and one extra for Windows for workgroups 3.11

You can have them if you so wish.

You will need DOS 6.22 as well as Windows 3.11.

Thanks for reminding me - I have the 3 disks containing Dos 6.2 that too.Originally supplied by Dell what seems to be centuries ago!!
