You'll have to be more specific about what sort of floppy drive
that you want to hook up. 8 inch? If so, RX01 or RX02? In this
case you'll also need a RXV211 or clone controller in the Q-Bus
backplane. 5.25 inch? If so, RX33 or RX50? In these cases you'll
just attach to the existing RQDX3/breakout box. 3.5 inch? If so,
you'll need a third-party Q-bus controller to run the drive, unless
you get your hands on a prototype RQDX4 :-)
