Sorry, no, I meant a 3.5" floppy drive. As soon as Allison replied I
realized the question was ambiguous.
I've found something intersting about the Compaq m/b that hosts my
1.2MB 5.25" disk drive, though.
That board auto-detects all its hardware on every boot. If I boot
with a DSQD disk in that drive, the BIOS auto-updates the settings to
'3.5" 1.44MB Drive".
Which is what prompted my question in the first place.
