Unfortunately, (and the VIA Super South Bridge) is one of the cases,
the integrated FDC can be configured about six ways till Sunday,
including PS/2 mode. DOS function will always work because DOS uses
the BIOS routines to access the drive--and the BIOS knows all about
the weirdnesses of the support chips.
OTOH, the VIA SSB chip has a neat mode allowing for interface to a
floppy drive using the parallel port.
