Where can I get a RiscOS 4.02 cd?

Post by keropi » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:31 pm

Hello!

my rpc has the 4.02 roms but tha machine came with no disks/cdroms or even a hdd/fdd/cd devices.
Is there a place to get a 4.02 CD? or an image of it? or buy an image?

Thanks!

thanks once again danielj! Do I burn those files to a cdrom ?

I know these are trivial questions but for me all is kinda confusing - it's the start :mrgreen:

Yes, I think that's probably the easiest way - not sure how best to do it though off the top of my head. Probably a method with an emulator to preserve the file type information?

oh yes that's an issue I read... a cd image would certainly work better/easier
