I have an old Dell 386sx as a collectible, with msdos 6.0 and windows 3.1 . It crashed and I tried running the four ms dos 6.0 5 inch disks to reinstall, but found that disk #4 is physically damaged and loading stops at that point. Any ideas where I can get a new set of these 6 disks? The pc is completely stopped, and even the diagnostic disk wont load, presumably because the opsys is not booted completely. I have much good data on this pc and would like to get it back in good order. Thanks for any help!

Justt use FreeDos, even though it's only at level 5, it is comparable to MS-dos 7.0 that was used in windows 95. And the price is even better. It's free. I use it to run my 486dx machine with Win3.1
