< I assume you mean the apps. CP/M and DOS are fairly similar

Similar yes, processors are very different. Z80 code will not run on a
PC (without an emulator) and PC software is useless to cp/m z80.

< Why do you need an 8" controller? The same floppy controller can be
< used for both 5.25" and 3.5". There never were any jumpers for any

Why is the sky blue. If I need to read a 8" of course.

< In fact, I am not familiar with any real difference between PCI and
< ISA controllers. I have never had any floppy problems. The reason

Huge differce. also the Floppy controller is on the MB for most current
generation P-II PCs.

< edge connectors, unlike 3.5" which use BERG strips (is that what
< they're called?). This is the biggest problem one is likely to have.

Trivial problem. the cables have both. The real problem is when the
software goes to work or out to lunch.
