the CD includes two full-length music videos, in several formats - so it probably wasn't everything Wink

There was at least 15 for version B of 95, I've read that the inital version of 95 was 13, though I can't verify that, for B they didn't have Everything that was on the CD such as the game hover and the extras on the CD that don't get installed even with a full install, but have everything else, they're all cab'd up if my memory serves me right, so it compresses them a bit, but it is a full version, and has everything your typical 95 installation has.

As far as I know, only operating systems released before Windows 95 fit on floppies, and you probably won't find them on the net (I have 3.1 on a PC, without the floppies, and have found nowhere to download additional files which have been deleted, corrupted, whatever).

However there are a number of floppy-based/lightweight Linux distributions out there, if you're interested.


/me still has his origianl windows 3.11 disks (or discs???) and also has 2.x on a 5 1/4" floppy, but alas I have no 5 1/4" floppy drive Very Happy

Get a 365 day trial of Windows Server 2003 for Microsoft and run it as a workstation, and it'll beat the reliability of anything, when the 365 days run out, order another copy of the trial and use that and repeat to fade

I have it, only for testing really, though I am tempted to replace a win2k domain controller in work with a samba based one on fedora cos the windows box is weeing me off

Oh and I have a crappy ensim bos that will need to have it, and maybe a cpanel box unless rackshack give enterprise linux away for free.
