the worst thing about not having a floppy is when you are installing a raid card or devices that need the driver installing OS.

it only reads from the floppy, not even CD rom, or flash drive pen.

what a pain in the butt!

solution: USB floppy drive

in my main system, i don't have a floppy drive...I have a LS-120 Superdisk drive...seriously...You can use both the Superdisks and regular floppies in it and it reads REGULAR floppies about 3x faster than a normal floppy drive
