Transferring software from cd to floppy

Is it possible to take the data from a software cd and transfer it to (many) floppies that will then load to hard drive? I have a couple of computers that do not have cd drives installed.....

Though it'd be easier to use Interlink with a parallel cable, yes, it is possible.
All you need is a software for backing up this data.
There's a backup with DOS and Windows, but it tends to not be compatible between different verions of the software. So if you don't have the exact same OS version on all the systems, don't use that.
Rather, send me an E mail at johnt@mail.club-internet.fr and I'll send you ARJ.EXE that'll do the job perfectly

In your E mail, you asked:
"Can you explain more about the parallel hook-up?"

So my answer is: Sure...

You need a regular parallel cable, like the one you use with a printer, but with 2 parallel ends, not one parallel and one centronic.

having that, you plug the cable in the parallel ports of 2 computers.
From DOS, you type: INTERSVR  on computer 1
On computer 2, edit config.sys and add the following line:
device=c:\dos\interlnk.exe
Then reboot.
The link is made, you have some extra drive on computer 2.
Check computer 1's screen to see information about this
