    that will either run from or install from a floppy...(or a few floppies )

    got this old ass tandy laptop i had up in a closet for years
    get this...a Tandy 1100FD laptop
    it has NO networking hardware at all...
    only a serial and a parallel port
    no optical drive, only a floppy drive
    and its got one of those green contrast kinda screens
    the bastard was made in like 88 or 89 i think

    so i need a really basic OS i'm thinking....
    (i'm thinking all i'll be able to run on it is win 3.x or 5.x)
    i'm sure i can find some kinda use for it, just dont know what yet........
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    no luck...the links arent working, nor is 'right click save as...'
    besides, i doubt that this laptop has 32bit technology
    does this mean i gotta learn more about dos?
