:mad: I am ready to lose my mind.

Can someone please tell me how to create windows 95 floppies from my existing CD.
Or can anyone direct me to a place that would have these floppies for download or purchase. Any help would be great.
I have my reasons.
Thanks

Can I just ask Root why on earth you would want 95 on floppy's?
Do you have 25 spare floppy disk's to hand because that's what 95 came on before cd's were invented?

Wolfeymole; I have an old 486 laptop that I am using as a word processor. Windows 95 is the best choice for this machine given it's age. :)

Couchmaster: The problem with ebay is that everyone there thinks there crap is worth gold. Know what I mean? :cool:


SMASH: You are the hero of the day! What would you like to trade for them? :D

Well a few beers sound terrific but I live in America and the bus fare
would be killer! LOL
Would you consider uploading them via e-mail attachments? Give me your
address and I will send you whatever you would like in return.

That's about the best I can do for now other than U.S.P.S. global mail :D

I just thought I would let everyone know that I have found a solution to my win95 floppy problem. I found a program that made it possible for me to format floppies to 1.72 instead of the ussual 1.44 megs. This allowed me to copy the CAB files form the windows 95 cd and transfer them to the hard drive in the laptop. Everything worked fine so I tried it with windows 98. This worked fine as well but I was not able to do the same with windows 98SE (cab files are about 2 megs each).
So with the laptop back in working order I am able to use it as a word processor or very simple internet duties.
Success Achieved!!!! (y) (y)

I also won an auction on e-bay for an 8 speed cdrom for the little buger. That will be here next week.

Thanks for all your input and offers. Especially Smash from down-under. You guys rock! :D

I agree with everything but the AVG antivirus. I have had some disaserous results in the past with that program. I actually prefer to use AVAST. So far I have had good results from them even when I deliberately go out and search for virus to test it's ability.
Thanks for the input though.
