    Old Old Games

    I had an old floppy disk with Microsoft Entertainment Pack on it. On there were some games like Taipei and about 10 others. I knew that someday the floppy would get fouled up and sure enough it did. I don't remember how I go the games on my laptop w/o a floppy, but I do remember that it always was looking for drive A. I reformatted my HDD recently and those games were lost on the PC but I did have the floppy backed up on my Maxtor. Unfortunately it wouldn't install. I got to thinking what if I shared an A drive from another computer. So I copied all of the files to a new floppy, but that didn't work either.Now I am up against the proverbial <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> SO! i thought, the setup needs to see it on the computer! So I got a <img src=/S/newbrain.gif border=0 alt=newbrain width=21 height=22> and copied all of the files to a spare memory stick, inserted it into my card reader and click install. It worked and I now have all of my time wasters back!!!
    Thanks John
