    Hey all - I have a problem with a IBM PC300PL. At every boot the 3.5
    floppy changes to a 5.25 floppy drive. I make the changes in the BIOS
    and save them but every time I reboot it asks to accept changes to be
    made and it doesn't matter if I accept or ignore the changes it still
    sees the drive as a 5.25 floppy drive. Any help would be great,
    thanks a lot!!

  2. Boy, I'm as mystified as you are. I would suggest that you search
    every conceivable line in your bIOS for mention of 5.25 floppy drives
    and DISABLE, DISABLE, DISABLE. There may be one setting that is
    overwriting your seeting.

    Other than that, I would contact the mfr of the mobo, OR, the BIOS.

    Sory I can't do much more.
