This morning at 6 am I succesfully transfered the first file from a 
floppy using the OpenBeOS floppy driver :) (and fell on the bed just 
after)

It's slow as hell for now as I transfer each sector at once, but it 
works.
I currently use the PIO mode, and I think if I get it fast enough we 
might 
be able to drop ISA DMA support from the isa bus manager, since it's 
only 
used for that it seems.
It already supports 720K floppies and double drives, which the R5 
driver
doesn't know about.

It should appear in the cvs RSN.

François.
