Put it on a network and backup to the network, or use Norton to uninstall, cleanup and fix the Win98 installation without wiping out the data.

I need to help a friend who has a laptop at his church to project images with MS PowerPoint only. It has Win/98 with a lot of unneeded stuff in there. It is giving a lot of trouble at this time. I told him about initialize the HD and replace the OS. The only trouble we have is that it only has a CD reader and a floppy drive 3.5. How can I do a backup of all his user data without be involved in any extra cost? Obviously, I just have five floppies in a little box somewhere... Ready to receive advices... Best regards and a much better weekend for all! Peter Vidal Pall Aeropower Corp.
