hmm. only thing i can think of is slaving it to another computer and formatting it that way. other than that, you might have a communication problem between the mobo and the floppy... might be a loose cable or something...and it's reading as a B: drive, which is a tad odd as well.

Actually, I just found an option in the Standard CMOS Setup (as opposed to the Advanced CMOS Setup) that allows me to assign A: to the 3.5". Now the problem is it still doesn't check the drive upon booting

I'm about ready to give up anyway.
