Hi FlaminJoe,

Another question for you if you don't mind. Reading back through this post, you were looking into the jumpers on the PC3 motherboard (jumper block W4) - did you ever find out anything more on this and if the machines does support 1.44mb drives?

Thank you

Sorry for the very late reply, I've been very busy and haven't had much time for my hobbies lately.

Yes I have found what the jumpers do, refer to my website. They just configure whether or not there are one or two floppy drives in the system.

As for 1.44mb support, you will only get that through an expansion card as the BIOS does not support anything higher than 720k.
