How can I create a spare set of Windows95 disks?

A. A. Microsoft distributed Windows 95 using a new method, storing 1.68 MB of data on a normal disk, this makes copying impossible using normal methods, however there is a piece of software called CopyQM which can be downloaded from which performs an image copy and using the command below can duplicate a windows 95 installation disk

copyqm a: bios blind silent tracks=80 sides=2 convert=1.68m

You will be prompted to insert the master disk and it will then read in the information and ask you to insert the target disk.
