I don't know. But it was a supported option from Otrona.
It would require software changes: either be a different
boot (system) disk, different ROM, or both.
But, IIRC, the MS-DOS option involved a daughter board with
an 808x co-processor.

If you can find drives that will physically fit,
they'll hook up to the same cables and controller.

Canon made a really nice 2/3 height DOUBLE drive.

The guy who has 3.5" drives in his would need, or have,
exactly the same software changes. Except for connectors,
3.5" 720K drives would use the same software as 5.25" 720K drives,
and are almost impossible to differentiate in software.
