I have a bit of an obsession with old operating systems, and while teaching myself to use UNIX and about operating systems I came across Minix 1.1. I want to install this on an old Dell setup, and while I am aware of the program RawWrite for writing floppy images in 32-bit Windows, it seems a bit wasteful to put eight 360KB images (all the required boot disks) onto eight 1.44MB floppies.

Question: Is there a legitimate way to combine these to make two bootable 3.5" floppy disks instead of eight? Is there also a way to do this with just one CD?

Consider donating/uploading your collection of abondonware to this site...vetusware.com – Moab Apr 20 '11 at 0:20
    
@moab betaarchive.com is a better choice. – kinokijuf Mar 8 '12 at 12:50

SYSLINUX's MEMDISK can boot multiple floppy images from a single bootloader, chosen at boot.
