Hello everyone. I'm new to the board. I'm also a newbie to playing Civilization. I actually started last summer when a friend of mine introduced me to CivII. I became addicted as most of you probably have as well. Anyways, I've "upgraded" my play to Civ III. I wonder if someone would be kind enough to tell me how to save games onto a floppy, cd, or removable disk.

The only way I can think of is to burn the save file onto the CD... So you need to first save it into the default save folder, then burn it.

The save files are generally too large to save to floppy. Even compressing them down by saving them with the Ctrl-S function in Civ3, they get pretty big after a while.
There is an autosave function that saves the previous five turns, and the first turn. This directory is deleted when a new game starts, but you can browse to that directory and move them elsewhere.
Assuming that you installed it with the default path, your save directory will be C:\Program Files\Infogrames Interactive\Civilization III\Saves. The autosave files will be in the 'Auto' folder under 'Saves'. If you're playing PTW or Conquests, they will be in '..\Civilization III\PTW(or Conquests)\Save'.
