If its that old you are more than likely only going to get Win 95 on it. I can supply you with the windows 95 operating system in floppy disk format. Email me for more info.

Not something I'd be doing. There's no guarantee that 95 will load on your ancient laptop, the offer of the disks is very noble, but there are 29 of them! - you only need one disc to be faulty and your done for.

Let it lie - poor old laptop's probably happy with 3.1
