    I am trying to copy a 22 MB file to a new computer from an OLD Win 95 OS computer. It has no internet, no CD writer, only floppy access. I know PKZip will allow copying to multiple floppies, but I need to make sure it works with Win 95. There is an older version of this product, but do I need two different Zip programs to be able to install on the new XP computer?

    Thanks

    PKZip runs in DOS mode so it will work. The GUI version (Zip for windows) runs on Windows 3.x onward.
    No, you do not need two.

    My gosh this brings back memories. I remeber the first time I used Pkzip when it was only a dos utility. This was the exact thing I needed to use it for. I had to zip up a folder and span it to about 4 floppies. That was about 11 years ago, just before Windows 95 came out.
