The Great SPARC Floppy Muddle

Having attempted to relocate a Flopy Drive from a SPARC-5 to an Ultra-2,
and encountered all sorts of misfeatures, bugs and incompatibilities, I
have written it all up on my website at
Hopefully, this will provide a general guide to how SPARCs and Solaris
(mis)handles floppies.

Comments will be welcomed.

Share and Enjoy!
