Open the floppy in my computer
On the drop down menu click edit, then click select all
Next, right click on the memory key in my computer and choose paste from the context menu that pops up.

If you need more detailed instrcuction just holler.

Guys thanks. Another question is. The program is on two floppies. How do I do that one?

SAme way except you might want to create a 2 folders on the flash drive, 1 for disk A and 1 for disk B. Then use the same instructions above to copy the files to each folder.

Is this a self executing .zip file "stretched" over 2 disks? Some of the multi disk install programs don't play well when loaded onto a single drive because they're actually looking for a floppy drive from which to path and then install. How old is the program (since it's on 3.5" diskettes, probably more than 5 yrs old)? A suggestion to ease the installation - name the folders/subfolders the same thing as the disks are named, it's easier for the installer to find them.
