I want to come back on the last item. I have made images of my 15y old 720k
floppies, and jumped back to 1991 this morning.
- 3x720k for DOS5.0
- 7x720k for win3.00a
- 7x720k for works2.0

all original, not warez. Cost a bunch back in 1991 :(

I tried a few things:
- install dos: ok
- install win: ok
- mouse: ok, no change of speed on qemu070/XPhost
- floppies 720k: ok. The catch to format them is to either quick format them,
not in high density. Inside win3.00a, it works like a breeze.

win3.00a even recognise 18M of ram to play with.
I've seen no problem whatsoever. Do you want my bins jeebs ?
