   Wow, major flashbacks!!! I remember installing my 1st 3.5" into an AT,
not XT but I do recall there was a big routine that we had to go through to
install a bunch of drivers and such to allow the system to recognize and use
the 3.5" disk drive.

> I picked up an old IBM XT today and it has a 3.5" floppy drive in it
(and it works!) Anybody ever heard of this? The drive has it's own
controller card and both it and the drive appear to be IBM parts. )I haven't
pulled everything apart to be sure.) FWIW the computer also has a FH 5 1/4"
floppy drive and a HH 5 1/4" 10 Mb hard drive with a Seagate logo on the
front of it. Anybody know if this is an original XT hard drive or a
replacement drive? It's been so long since I've seen an original XT with the
10 Mb drive that I don't remember much about it.
