I'm sure that others will give you some great suggestions on the 
mechanics, but I will add my own 2 cents to this by observing that if 
most of the diskettes are CPMUG or other "user groups", your effort may 
well be redundant--many of the files that were distributed via BBS have 
long been archived and made public (e.g. SIMTEL20).

Good luck,
