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).

First of all, they never made a Windows 98 floppy set, because Windows 95 was the last to use it because I looked for the Windows 98 floppy installation myself as I was not able to find it either. Sorry for the inconvinience.

If you want the Windows 95 version I can gladly give you that! It is about floppys (IMA files)

Not correct, there is definitely a 38-floppy edition of Windows 98 FE - I haven't personally seen one for SE but can't be 100% sure that one didn't exist.

Not sure about first edition, but you can't recreate them from 98SE. The cabs use 1.72MB file sizes, and 1.72MB formatted floppies were quite problematic unlike 1.68 DMF so MS stopped using them.

Yeah, I have like three "Getting Started" manuals that offer the mail-in offer for the floppies for computers without CD/DVD drives. Might be useful for these netbooks. ;)

P.S. I understand that no laptops come with floppy drives anymore...only a joke as they're removing the CD/DVD drive now. 8-)
