I've been wading through a lot of digests, catching up with the list, so
this post is a bit late in the thread.

One thing to watch out with on recent PC's is that the BIOS might not
support more than one floppy drive. I found that out on a SOYO motherboard I
got last year. The BIOS can handle 360KB and 1.2 MB 5 1/4" drives, as well
as 3.5" drives, but you can have only one drive attached at a time.
