I have recently asked a question about my OS not reading my hard drive. I finally have the right files but my drive still won't read them. I don't think I have the right BIOS settings so my comp is not picking up the floppy drive. Can someone please help me get it working? I have Phoenix BIOS if that helps.

well in the bios somewhere there will be a setting saying
1st boot priority or somwthing similar
it may be set to CD-ROM
change it to

1st boot device
floppy drive (or A: drive)

2nd boot device

3rd boot device

that should then boot from any floppy drive you have in the system.
floopy drives dont really need any drivers or anything there should already be a generic driver install make sure you have the floppy cable connected in the right way and not in backwards (just to be sure)
it should work but just make sure you have the floppy booting before the hard drive,
