Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I'm looking to learn about Linux, and so I'd also like to have a look at some of the early versions, so if anyone can point me to a set of install disks (either floppies or CD, and can be used in VirtualPC) of an early one, like SLS, Slackware, or RedHat, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Hi again.

I've downloaded a few of them now, but there's another problem now: how do I get them onto (virtual) floppy disks? What I'm trying to do is make a set of VFD/IMA images that can be used with VirtualPC for testing, and then that can be extracted to real disks so I can install it to an old laptop.

I know I look like a n00b, but that's why I want to learn. Thanks.

And for the instal disk? There doesn't appear to be a recognisable image there (there's a file with the extension '3,' with size 1440KB, which I imagine is the one, but Winimage won't open it), so what do I do there?

I've done it. I changed the extension from .3 to .IMA just out of curiosity, and it worked.
