Have you ever installed OS/2 Warp 3 Upgrade from floppies? I did, on a Packard 
Bell 486 SX system with a 63 Mhz Pentium Overdrive. For some reason once it got 
to the GUI stage and I was feeding it disk after disk, I'd have to keep the 
mouse in constant motion while it was reading a disk or it'd freeze.
What was the upgrade from? OS/2 2.something, also on floppies. I picked up both 
really cheap somewhere, and after going through the process of installing 2.x 
then the Warp 3 upgrade I found out why it was cheap. ;)
I also found out that tinkering with its massive config.sys file in any way was 
an easy way to cause big problems.
