I have the setup disk, but no suitable 5-1/4 drives. My classics are not
DOS-based :-)

I seem to recall there was a way to diskcopy using the HD as a buffer,
if this is true I could dupe the disk on my Portable III. Otherwise I
would need to get some 5-1/4 disk drives to install in another PC.

BTW - my portable III is having cmos battery problems. Does anyone know
(before I crack the case) what battery would serve as a replacement (and
is it soldered in place?).
