    My wife is special ed teacher and has an old program which loads from 4 floppy disks. Insert 1, then 2 etc. Problem , her new laptop runiing Windows XP Home does not have a floppy drive. Does anyone know of freware or shareware that can combine the 4 disks into one file or combination of files to load on new laptop. The original computer is running Win 98 and we can transfer via either CD or flash stick. Appreciate your help in advance.
    Thanks!

    If it was like my program, when it asked for disk 2 etc, just double-click the folder, i think thats all there was to it.
