    Chaps,
    My new LMP case comes tommorrow luverly jubbly:D but the case has no provision for a floppy (spoil the look anyway), you could mount one internally with your fav proggy on floppy disc i.e ghost or a boot disc (i still use win98) & enable dis-able via the bios but really i wanted something that i could service externally.
    So what are my options usb floppy, or usb zip, or one of those usb memory dongle type thingy's? could i boot from these devices like i do when i set my boot-up list in bios.
    Do i really need a floppy at all?
    What are my options.
    Any help app'd
    Tim

    Create a bootable CD with ghost etc on it, all you need is a Windows 98 startup floppy and a CDRW. If you don't have access to these I'm sure someone can help you out.

    Thanks for the replies chaps but i guess i was after something a bit more "exotic" like for instance Jeff's ramdrive.
    Is there such a thing to replace a floppy the closest i've found are the the little usb keyfobs with memory on board.
    Thanks.
    Tim
