    hey, I have a windows 95 floppy disk #4. if u still need it, I could make
    an iso and e-mail it to you. I do not know if I can still read it tho. In
    one of the other discussions there were two groups of people: the first
    group having floppy disks that last basically forever, and the second group
    having floppies not lasting long at all. I relate much more strongly to the
    latter.
