2.88 mb floppy drives

I have a few 2.88's that came from old NCR 486 microchannel machines - not
sure if they need the defacto standard ribbon and power or the PS/2 style
ribbon only with power through the cable. I'll dig one out and see. They're
kind of a green tan or olive-ish color on the face if memory serves me. They
all worked before I ripped the boat anchors apart for scrap.

Subject: 2.88 mb floppy drives

For no real sane reason I have the itch to put a 2.88 MB floppy drive in my
next otherwise fairly normal PC. Seems like the world is littered with 2.88
drives for the old PS/2, but I see nothing that works with a normal PC
floppy connection (although most if not all motherboards do support 2.88
and/or LS120). Any tips on finding a PC 2.88? Do they really need the ED
