I have a problem...

Several builds of Windows 3.1 have all their files in one folder/archive.
I want to recreate the floppys of them, but I dont want to go through
their ini's and move every single file by hand.

Can somebody help me?

Thank you

The problem is, that I have 9 different builds from which I would like to have the floppys. I wont move the files by hand, because every build has 300-600 files.

I had some experience with building floppy disks for custom builds of Windows.

The trick here is to set the diskettes out in order as disk1 .. disk9 (or whatever). You then change setup.inf so that disk3 is ..\disk3, rather than . (current directory).

It is best to work from a known diskette layout, but basically, there is a text-mode setup that occupies roughly two to three diskettes, and the rest goes elsewhere.

The other trick is that the string ':' appears to be uniquely diskette related, so grepping for '6:' gives what ought be on diskette 6.

In practice, there are three diskette bundles, being the dos-mode setup, the windows-mode setup, and the printer drivers.

Some of the cdrom-layouts do not correspond to actual floppy diskette layouts. Win-OS/2 is an example of this.
