        Probably ebay since MS does not support Win9X/ME and older Win OSs
        If you dont know DOS, you dont know Windows...

        Thats why Bill Gates created the Windows NT Family.

          Why?  


          my thoughts exactly:

          I want to change mine to dos and I mean solely dos and not cmd that you get in windows.

                  but anywho, it may be pretty tough to get all Windows OS onto one computer, probably impossible since you have to worry about Maximum RAM, HD space, and so on.

                    unlovedwarrior, do you want a copy of Windows 3.1.
                    I have it on floppies!   :o ???

                      I don't see why Microsoft just puts Windows 3.1 on there site to download.

                      I don't think putting it on there site is going to harm there sales.

                      because putting it up for download is going to cause a flurry of support calls from clueless people.

                        Then they should ask Apple to host it for them!  ;)
