According to http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.0R/hardware-sparc64.html, "1.44 Mbyte floppy drives" are not supported. http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.1R/hardware-sparc64.html doesn't say anything about floppy drives that I could find, but it says that Sun Blade 100 is "Fully Supported." I suppose can infer from that that floppy drive support on the Sun Blade 100 made it in between 5.0 and 5.1. -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
