    I remember installing windows 3.0 this way after I made a backup set. Disk 28 out of 30 failed on me I had to phone up and ask for it to be sent via the snail mail as there was no internet then. 2 weeks later it came. Oh the pain!

    Just looked at the image more closely, 3711 disks!!!, I can hear that circular churning sound now as your heart drops and you know you've got a read error on your hands. It's gonna happen for sure.
