This should work, but by downlaoding i indicate destination A: ( my floppy disk device). Surprisely i get error message stating download impossible due no space enought on disk ( i just formatted disks) Extrange, becasue if the goal is create 6 disk i should receive message suggesting insert new empty formatted disk, after finish with copying the previous one. This process should be done in 6 times.

      You are using 1.44MB disks and not 720KB ones.

      2 2 was 1 2.

        It was a while since I did it myself but if I'm remember correctly I downloaded it to the hard drive because it came in a single large file and after that extracted it to the floppys
