    Is there any place I can get a Windows 3.1 Boot Disk downloaded from? I've tried bootdisk.com; but they don't have a search, and I didn't see anything that looked usable. Any suggestions?

    I don't think there is such a thing? Windows 3.1 is installed on top of dos. Boot with a dos 5 or 6 boot disk and see if you can run win.exe. You could probably make one from a system with 3.1 installed on it. Not sure what files you need? This site may help
    Run windows 3.1 from a ram drive.

    Exit Windows to the DOS prompt, insert the diskette and type:

    format a: /s /u /q

    /s = copy system files
    /u = don't save unformation information (unconditional format)
    /q = quick

    Then you'll have a DOS boot diskette
