Nowhere legally unless you happen to have either a Technet or MSDN
subscription. Your best bet is probably to look on eBay.

You don't say why you need a disk. Do you have a PC currently running Win
Me? Does it have a CD writer or do you have access to a CD writer? If you
have a PC running Win Me look for the file BASE2.CAB, by default this is
normally located in either a C:\windows\options\install or
C:\windows\options\cabs folder. If you can locate this file the folder
containing it is most likely to contain all the files necessary to install
Win Me. The size of the folder should be around 150MB or so containing 25
files with a CAB extension together with a file named setup.exe amongst the
others files. Burn the contents of this folder to a CD, if you don't have a
CD burner on the Win Me PC copy the files to a usb pen drive and burn them
to a CD on any PC with a CD burner. You should then be able to install Win
Me using the CD you have burned and your key by running setup.exe.

Best of luck,

I *really* must try and put that onto a web page at some point, Mike - fancy
trying to write a set of instructions that I can flesh out?
If not (and I can think of about 50 reasons!g) then I'll have a go
myself...... wanna proof-read it?
I'm still thinking about the reinstall/update stuff, and how best to present
it......perhaps this should be added to the mix?

Noel,

Proof-read yes but you already know how averse I am nowadays to writing or
publishing web pages. I've resisted having even a web page so it's over to
you Noel and I'll be happy to check it through for you. As for instructions
on how to reinstall I thought you had already covered this on your site.

Cheers,

Mike
