I think the best way to do this is to make disk images. I know the Mac can
do this with Mac disks, and I'm sure the PC can too, but I've not found
(i.e., not looked for) the software to do it. Can someone recommend a PC
program to read 5.25" (and 3.5"?) diskettes and make images of them?

This, I think, is where syquest drives (and similar) come in *very* handy.
You can store the images on a removeable disk and not bother taking up fixed
disk space for them.
