[Q] I think someone on the Aero list has figured out how to get the floppy disk
access to work under Warp. I don't remember the details.

[A] I did ... by booting DOS 6.21 under OS/2. But I started farquing around
with a device driver called 'reserve.sys' which seems to tell OS/2 to NOT use
specific areas of memory. Sounded great - possibly OS/2 using D000-DFFF was
what was causing the floppy to die; unfortunately I couldn't get reserve.sys to
work (there's no documentation), and when I removed it it killed my setup so
that my 'DOS w/ floppy' wasn't working anymore!!! I'm going to retry getting it
to work again when I get the time (sigh) ... then it will eventually go on my
web page (sigh)
