You already have the software (the OS). Just find an old floppy drive, plug it in, insert the diskette, open windows explorer (or My computer) and you'll see a new drive. Just drag the files to a new folder on your PC.

Windows Vista has the software already to burn onto CD or DVD.
Just open explorer, put a blank in the drive and copy the contents off the floppy onto the CD drive.
The wizard will guide you through the burn process..

I only need to perform this function a couple of times a year, but I finally bought an External 'USB Floppy Drive' for the times I need it.

This one from NewEgg should do you right: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16821118001

Using one of these makes it as simple as plugging in the External - then following the advice given by the other Experts.
