I would suggest changing to pen drives. They are potentially much larger
than floppies in capacity and most machines have extra places to insert
OT - If anyone is intrigued by the Windows 7 with Touch Screen and Web
Cam capabilities here is a tip. You need 5 usb ports for the various
gadgets, and my Dell came with 4 on the back of the machine. Inserting a
usb hub caused the machine to crash.
All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

Just this very day I have successfully set up 2 pendrives to boot GRUB
and all the explanations I could find made the process appear harder
than it actually is/was. To be honest, it was easier than floppies.
