Splitting CAB files from cd to install from diskette

I have the WIndows 95 CD-Rom, but I do not have a CD-Rom on the one computer I need to install it on. I need a utility or a way to split the 1.95 MB Cab files so that they can go onto a 1.44 MB diskette.  If you know of a utility or another way to accomplish this I would really appreciate it.

Just install Microsoft's Powertoys on your CD-ROM equiped computer. There is a cabinet (cab) files viewer utility that enables viewing and extracting. Once installed, just right-click on a cab file to see it open in a folder on desktop; then copy individual files to diskettes.
Powertoys are available at this address:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/download/powertoy.exe

There is of course the DOS prompt method to do this but the above method is the best.

deadaim and khabir,

If that doesn't help because some of the files are in use, you may find the following Knowledgebase article useful:

"How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files"

The URL for it is:

I was informed by someone that I used to work with that Microsoft had a utility that would format a regular floppy so that it would be able to hold the the full 1.95 MB.  Has anyone else ever heard of this program.  If so please let me know a name of it or where I can find it.  If not, should I just unload the cab files to a dir on my hard drive and just start copying em to floppies?....Thanks in advance
