Who remembers the days when a program install required multiple floppy disks or CDs? [Video]

I cannot claim to be old enough to remember the days of floppy disk installs (i.e. installing programs off floppy disks) but I do remember the days when a large program spanned across multiple CDs and one would have to insert CD after CD to install a program. (The most prominent example that comes to mind is World of Warcraft.) Boy were those a pain, especially if something happened while on disk 34 out of 35.

If you are one of the people who experienced and/or remembers those days, you will probably enjoy the following video. Check it out:
