We are moving licensing from one group of servers for Coldfusion 5 but it appears Adobe no longer has the media so we can make this move. Any ideas (aside from buying new)?

My company owns three licenses of the (incredibly old) V5 ColdFusion server license.  We want to move the product to a new server group but are unable to obtain the media to install it on the new servers.  I had asked Adobe if they could provide it but the oldest available was V7.  Does anyone have any ideas on ways we can locate the media so we can move to our new servers?  Our last ditch option is to buy new and consider the old licenses worthless.

There's a community effort headed by Gavin Pickin to provide hosting of legacy ColdFusion installers here: http://tinyurl.com/cfdownloads.  The CF5 Windows installer is available there.
