I've got an old DOS (read: abandonware) machine running my old DOS games (as referenced here). I'm finding that over time, my floppies are starting to die and become completely unreadable.
So recently i've been finding abandonware binaries of games i currently own and have downloaded them to my Vista box.
Vista machine has no floppy drives but has a CD/DVD-R. Vista machine has no serial or parallel ports. DOS machine has floppy drives but no CD/DVD drive. (it does have a 100mb HDD though) Amazingly, both machines have USB and ethernet. DOS machine has some ancient 3Com 10BT card.
I can't seem to figure out how to get FTP much less a TCP/IP stack up and running on the DOS machine, and no forms of USB storage have been readable on both machines.
Whats the best way to get these binaries over to the DOS machine?
(I know this is starting to sound like that age old question of how to move the fox, baby, and bag of grain across the river on a boat that only seats two)
