Occasionally you need to add (or just use) the DRIVPARM= command in the
Config.Sys, either by itself or with DRIVER.SYS. I reworked an Epson that
wouldn't recognize the 1.44m floppy but it had a hi density controller. I guess
the parameters for the drive weren't int he older BIOS. The addition of the
DRIVPARM command fixed it fine.
