Oh.. Nice I contributed something you guys don't have? Just dumb luck haha.. I found that torrent in the process of looking for whistler. It doesn't have the build I'm looking for but it is still useful because of all of the other builds in there.

It seems we don't have NT 3.5 build 388 so I will download it and see if it's legit.
UPDATE... It seems it's not NT 3.5 but actually NT 3.1! Unfortunately, it would not install using any of the normal methods (winnt /b) so I am at a loss how to install this build. It also seems that the EXE format has changed a little bit, most of the EXE files are detected as MS-DOS programs instead of Windows programs. I did find that CALC.EXE is a normal Windows program however and it seems this build is legit:
UPDATE II... It seems that most EXE files in this build are actually not a different format, but in fact, corrupt! I opened a few of them in a hex editor and all I got were walls of 00 which is nothing

Theres also a cool pirate bay torrent with dose betas: [url=http://www.betaarchive.co.uk/imageupload/1276092654.or.84159.jpg][img]http://www.betaarchive.co.uk/imageupload/1276092654.th.84159.jpg[/img][/url] Unfortunately, TPB was offline for some time, so i downloaded it from an alternative server, so i cant tell you the link. In this torrent, Daytona 388 is also very corrupt and cant be installed, i downloaded it many times, but it gets only the first ~20 mb.
