Default Transfering files

I have a need to transfer windows 95 to floopys from a cd I have. Is there a way to do this aside from just copying and pasting files?

Do you just want to back up onto floppy, or do you want to use the floppies for installation?

I think rnash means copying the entire installation process onto a bunch of floppies.

I suppose you could use the dos prompt. You'd insert the windows disc and using XCOPY, would copy entire directories from the CD to floppy, and it'd probably ask you to change disks as you went along.

I don't know how this works though entirely.

After doing that though. You have a problem of getting the floppies to install Windows 95 onto the machine...

May I ask why you want to do this anyway?
