Copying Win95 Disks to Hard Drive

I would like to be able to copy my Windows 95 Upgrade Disks to my hard drive so that it doesn't take about 45 minutes to reinstall, and so the floppy disks don't corrupt.  I've tried copying them all to a selected directory and it tells me that the disk is not inserted or the drive door not closed about halfway through gathering information about my computer.  I've also tried copying them to directories marked "Disk1" to "Disk13" but it asks for me to insert Disk 2, halfway through initializing the Install Wizard!

Help would be great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think you might have to copy all the disks to the root directory, meaning if your hard drive is C, copying all the disks to C:\.  The reason for this is when the disk is inserted, the installation is instructed to look in DRIVE:\INSTALL.WHATEVER, NOT DRIVE:\DISK1\INSTALL.WHATEVER.  Hope it works.
