I can try.Would sending each floppy as a folder(attachment) work?
I guess it would be 2 folders sent seperately.Then you could drag n drop each file to the floppy(s) you'll need.
Sorry,but I havent ever had the need to send attachments so I'll have to figure it out.

If that doesn't work for whatever reason, I'll be home in ~1.5 hours, and I will give you access to my ftp so you can upload them there lynch, and then gt can d/l from there.

If you need it, just post, I'll create it and reply with the login and pass when I get home.

Cool

hmmmm i just had a look at the e-mail and i'm not sure if its what its suppose to be, i think some files that you attacthed have appeared as text...heres what the first e-mail looks like...

Code:
Part: 1
See if this works-it's the contents of the first disk.That would be the 
bootdisk. Just put all these files on one floppy.
I'll send the second one in a seperate e-mail.
I tried sending this as a folder but I could'nt do it for some 
reason.Hence the loose files.

RESCUE.TXT
Running PartitionMagic from Rescue Disks

The rescue disks contain the necessary files to boot your
computer and run the DOS GUI version of PartitionMagic. You must
boot from the first rescue disk.

The rescue disks will be useful in the following situations:

-If you have hidden the hard disk partition where PartitionMagic
is installed and need to get back into PartitionMagic to unhide
the partition.

-If you have accidentally converted a partition to FAT32 when your
operating system does not support FAT32 and now your computer will
not boot. (Use the rescue disks to convert the partition back
to FAT.)

-If you only have Windows NT 3.51 on your computer, and you need
to manipulate the NT boot partition (the one with the Windows
directory).

-If other occasions arise when you do not have access to
the Windows version of PartitionMagic on the CD or hard disk.


To use the rescue disks:
------------------------

1. Boot your computer from the first rescue disk.

2. Insert the second rescue disk when prompted.

PartitionMagic runs automatically.

Although the rescue disks run a DOS version of PartitionMagic,
it is a full GUI application and has similar functionality to
the Windows executable.

To access online help, insert the second rescue disk, then choose
General or Index from the Help menu.

For additional information about running PartitionMagic from
the rescue disks, including how the rescue disk version of
varies from the Windows version, refer to Chapter 1 of the
user guide.

My thought is maybe you zip all the files then attatch it ?
as a .tgz or .zip
or maybe upload them to MasterC's ftp...

i would also like to go ahead with my other idea if these floppies do not work, but i need to know a good partiioning program to lets say at least half my linux partition, format the other half to a fat32 one and install mayb windows 2000,m.e or 98, so if anyone can find me one it would be good, or does mandrake have one bundled with it ?
