Windows 3.1
I can't find my floppy, and even if I could I don't know if I could find a drive, and even if I could I don't have the time to power up my desktop and install it... So, does anyone have a copy of Windows 3.1 they can PM me?

I'm sure loose iso's are around the net.

But why? What requires Win3.1?

I'm sure there are, but I wanted a trustworthy source.

I want to run a very old piece of software for nostalgic purposes, and it runs on Windows 3.1. I read that Windows 3.1 can be installed inside the Dosbox emulator, and then Windows 3.1 applications and games can be installed in that environment.

As Seyiji said, either go with Dosbox or pcem, i'd also prefer pcem.
"Trustworthy" is a "flexible" description if you try to download an OS.
