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.

Subject: [PCTECH] Backup data from a laptop

Hi list!

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
giving a lot of trouble at this time.  I told him about initialize the HD
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!
