There ain't no sech thing as 2.3

2.xx was only available with 3.5" support in specially modified versions
for certain specific brands of machines (usually in version 2.11). Even
the disk format isn't standardized on those.

3.20 (internally it thinks that it is three point twenty, NOT two), is the
first version that includes 3.5" support (720K) without special machine
specific modifications.

2.11 and 3.31 are only available in versions that were intended for
specific machines. 'Course in most cases, the only thing that is
different is the code in MODE.COM, and sometimes FORMAT.

If you have a machine with specific peculiarities, 3.31 is the hot setup.
