    Windows 3.1 / 3.11 and Windows 98 SE

    I know this is a long shot but would anybody still have a copy of Windows 3.1 or 3.11 WFW or Windows 98 SE?

    I want to build a virtual machine to show students what we had to work with when I was growing up and also the history of windows.

    I have managed to make a Virtual Dos 6.22 from Floppy Images but the windows images were corrupt.

    Regards

    Graham

    You'll want 3.11 if using vmware, last time I used 3.1 on vmware it crashed after a few minutes, a known issue.
