I have BC/TC version x.x in 5.25" disks and my computer has
a 3.5" drive, I copied big disks to the little disks and it will not
install correctly.  How do I install this?


Copy all the information from the 5.25's to a directory on your 
current machine (ie: INSTALL).  Run the install program from your
hard drive.

(The problem you are having is based on the fact that there were
different disk layouts for different size disks --- and the
install program detects what type of disk it is being
run from and expects a particular layout based on that, so when
you copy to different size floppies, things don't work. Copying
over and running from the hard drive solves the problem. :))
