That's a good idea, because the 3.5" floppy drive seems to be disappearing from PCs. It's kind of funny that PC hardware and software becomes obsolete so soon. An example: In 1995 to 1998, I made some backups on 230MB magneto-optical disks using a SCSI-based drive. I couldn't get the cheap 8-bit ISA SCSI adapter to work in Linux 2.4, and some disks were formatted with xiafs, which was last supported by the 2.0 kernel. Luckily, a friend of mine had very old Debian GNU/Linux installation CDs lying around, and we managed to rescue the data. That was two years ago, only 6-7 years after the disks were originally written. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
