So you are trying to segment a Windows 95 disk onto floppies? From memory I think it was any file not in a numbered *.cab file.

Any reason you are attempting this? Can't you just copy the cabs files directly to a hard drive from another machine with a CDROM if that is what you are lacking.

If you want the CD Boot disk for Win95 you need to check which version you are installing.  Images of the Win95 boot disks for all three major releases can be found here:

If you are trying to extract a set of installation floppies from the CD-ROM I seem to remember there being 13 diskettes (Office took 51!!)

M :o)

ps I have a nagging feeling you may need a different SYSTEM.INF file to help SETUP put the files together properly, the one in MINI.CAB from the CD may not locate the files accurately, I guess there's only one real way to find out ...
