I have compiled a full installation disk of Microsoft Word 5.1A for Macintosh (which doesn't require disk swapping when installing Word 5.1 for Macintosh).

Here's the link:

Hope this works.

This full installer disk is created to prevent frustration on disk swapping.

Wuss! :D That is only 6 measly disks! :lol:

Try Office 97 Professional from 46 glorious 3.5" DMF formatted disks instead:

Besides, why would anyone want to install from anything besides floppy? :alien:

Yes, I asked my lady friend to let me watch her insert a 5.25 floppy in a drive. I found it strangely compelling.

I remember reading something a long time ago about a guy who worked for a big company, and they requested XP on floppies. Microsoft supposedly fulfilled this request, to the tune of 240+ diskettes (I don't recollect the exact number stated.) I don't know if it was legit or not, but I'd like to use an installer set like that at least once, just for kicks.

Seeing a fine woman handle a floppy is always an exciting experience. :wink:
