Well, *some* way of writing 5.25 media from downloaded images, anyway.

40t 5.25" drives are not particularly common these days, though. Available 
for $25 or so via various channels still, it seems, but they're not kicking 
around in hardware that's destined for recycling like they once were. I see 
the odd 80t drive (once or twice a year) but of course they're useless for 
writing 40t media.
