I also wanted one with my new Desktop, but for some reason, when the
builder connected one to the motherboard, the machine refused to boot.
Only later did I find that even though there is a floppy controller on
my Intel motherboard, it is not compatible with the motherboard
Result: I don't have a floppy. (which makes it very hard to install
Windows XP on my motherboard, since the RAID drivers for my
motherboard are only supplied on a floppy.)
