I'm not sure if the set of disks is even complete, but they might
accidentally fall into a machine where image files might be
accidentally be created from them. Someone would still need to find a
serial number, or crack it using a W4r3Z k3yG3n (not that such a thing
would exist for an installation of Xenix)!

I have a Windows 98 machine with a 360K 5.25" floppy hanging out the
side of it, stored at work. You know, for proper work purposes. Like
the old workshop machine which has a 1.2MB drive in it, which I
certainly never used for creating 80 track DFS floppies full of games
during work time.

In fact, I now have a load of spare motherboards from identical
machines bought at the same time, which have now been broken up for
parts. If I can persuade the school to let me have them (or buy them),
would anyone on here be interested in one? They've got something like
an Athlon 2600+ installed, and I know from experience that they'll
correctly write FM formatted disks.
