I have Windows 3.11 disks that say Commodore on it, are they of any value to this community? I haven't really tested them, I did make a CD version just to make it easier to install 3.11 easier.

I forget if there was any special software included with it, I don't have Virtual PC or VMWare installed , but what does everyone think?

I don't remember the model, the PC's IDE controllers wouldn't read the disk, and this was before I knew of IDE addin cards, so after that she decided to give me the software and PC because she got a new one, and I noticed the Windows 3.1 and MS-Dos 5.0 with the commodore labels.

I will get Virtual PC set up to see if there was any special software or any special modifications to 3.1 or anything, would scans of the disks be helpful as well?

I just made a VHD to check but there really isn't anything different, I can however make scans of the disks if anyone is interested.
