I've just been and read Art's rant about why not at
http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/openbsd/2005-08/0254.html - he seems
to be on about AMD64, not AMD Duron (which are i386 architecture).
Is there some bug I'm unaware of in AMD's implementation of i386, but not
Intel's, that prevents floppies working properly? If so, how come they work
with my pre-Duron, let alone AMD64 Windows 95 disks?
