        Call up Microsoft and give them your license number. They may be able to work something out.

          I'm guessing your warranty is out date. Last I heard MS charges 19.95 for replacement disks.

                EBay, or a cracked copy from a friend. Good luck......
                Why you want to run 9 year old software, that was 8 years outdated when it was first released, anyway? 1986 OS's kind of suck.

                      The Call # on the software, reads 1998,, but it was coded/seeded in 1996,, even then, it is built as an emulator to a 1984 operating system. In tech terms, you are rubbing blunt sticks for fire.......
                      I you got a PC,, go SUSE Linux,,,
                      If you got a Mac, You are set.... don't bother worrying.
