    Hi

    I have a program here (Lotus 123v5) and it's on 7 floppies. I want to save those floppies to a CD and make it work the same as programs now-a-days do. How?

    Cheers
    Todd

    Im running a Win98SE PIII450 w/320ram.

    Save the disks to your hard drive first. Create seven folders Disk1 - 7 and copy the contents of each disk to the appropriate folder. Then burn the seven folders to CD

    I did that..and once the installation goes..it stops at the point where you would if you were installing from floppies. It says insert disc 2 and hit return. Now I know the way around that...but I want to have the program install with no interuptions - so a non-pooter person can load the program.

    Cheers

    I just copied all the files of the 7 discs into one folder instead of the 7 individual ones. It works perfect.

    Thanks

    I was going to suggest that next. Wasn't quite sure what you were trying to do.
