I'm not sure how far I'm going to get in this.
The whole idea makes me feel a bit unclean. A guy and his two cousins get hit by lightning and slide into an alternate reality where all the women wear highly revealing clothing. That is their first sight of it.
But it does work fine in the XPmode emulator.
I didn't have to worry about the networked drive. Unlike the floppy, the built in DVD drive shows up natively in XPmode.
UPDATE: It may not just be fashion. It may be law. They were standing there being astounded at the lack of clothing on all the girls, and then a policeman rushed towards them. Yuuki was wearing a full miko costume, and it may be that she was violating some sort off law about non-exposure.
If so, it really does make me feel unclean.

Oh, like in Heinlein's Puppet Masters? But maybe the parasites only attack cute Japanese schoolgirls, and that's why?

Actually, what it reminded me of is one of the Soul Rider books by Jack Chalker, which describes a dystopia in which magic is used to make all the women gorgeous -- and stupid. Basically to turn all of them into sex machines.
I found it highly revolting.
The two girls there are (non-identical) twins. The blonde one is already something of an exhibitionist, and she's been doing a lot of modeling, including swimsuit stuff. She shows every indication of liking the situation. (Her name is Shana.)
Yuuki (the other one) is shy and strait-laced, and her reaction to it all was, eventually, to pass out.

Oh, and if you haven't found it yet, Steven, open any folder, then click Tools > View tab > check "Show hidden files and folders" and then click Apply. You might have to open a folder in the list named "Hidden files and folders".

As for Chalker, that sounds pretty typical. Almost all of his books seem to exist for sexually torturing his characters, and often do so through physical transformation. I met him at PhilCon once, and he made off with the 'zine I was showing him, assuming I was giving it to him rather than just letting him look at it. I suppose he liked the Furries some of the illustrators did.
