The machine I'm trying to do this on is using Windows 98SE. I can set my BIOS
that drive B: is a 720k 3.5" floppy drive, but when I try to boot, I get told,
after it detects what IDE devices I have, that there is a floppy drive error.
This is before Windows even gets a chance to boot, so I'm thinking that the
BIOS, or something is the one erroring out. Not Windows. (*SIGH* Give me the
days when everything WASN'T plug-and-pray.)
