I have more than 30 working systems here. Only one has no floppy. Probably
80% actually work right. Making or locating a bootable floppy is a whole lot
easier than a USB stick when you also count having to screw with BIOS
settings each time a USB boot is needed, if the machine is even capable of
USB boot, which also has to be figured out.
As to the OP, I don't think any of my Rawhides actually boot any more to see
if the floppy light stays on or not. :-p
