Wow - a double whammy, not only were they windows diskettes, but they were 
lucky number 13...

What did Win95 take, something like 20 or 21 diskettes? I remember having to 
"make" a set of Win95 diskettes for my Libretto 50, and when I decided to 
rebuild the system with a bigger HD, it was a ROYAL pain to slowly feed in 
each of the 20 or so diskettes...
