what makes you think 1.03 german would be a fake? 1.02 was the first internationalized version.

I understand that there are other versions with other languages, but this one is suspicious in that all the files will literally fit on two 1.44 MB diskettes, and apparently they are not official from Microsoft.
I meant by "fake" whether it is not modified at all. After all, someone copied the files from the original diskette to their own, it is quite possible that they are modified for their own use as well.
