If you haven't already, you would be wise to make duplicates of those 
floppies, and also burn images of them to a CD-ROM. Floppies lose their 
magnetism over time and thus have a shelf life of ~10-20 years. They 
may no longer read when you get around to trying to use them.

You should do the same with the zip100 disks.
