Where is win95?

Question

I have an IBM ThinkPad 760ED, although its a dinosaur by todays standards, I dont see any reason to send it to the junkpile, since it still fits the needs that I use it for. It doesnt have a CD-ROM drive, so installing the operating system(W95)is a challenge. I was able to locate W95 on floppy disk, but a few of the disks are missing. My 1st question: Is there any way to, thru the disk copy utility for Iomega 250Zip drive, copy the W95 CD for install? My second question is: If not, then what would be the easiest way to locate the missing disks?

Thanks in advance, Jerry

Yes! Installing win95 without a CD-rom can be very challenging It would be extremely easy for you to copy the files from the cd to your desktop or any location of your choosing and then copy and paste those files into a zip drive if you had a cd-rom If you insist on staying with win95 I would suggest that you get access to a computer with a cd-rom drive, move the file folders on that cd to a file that you choose on the computer itself and then move those files from the computer to the Iomega zip drive that you have.
