A Linux boot floppy saved out bacon just last week, and it's still the 
easiest way to flash a BIOS; Partition Magic still insists on using 
floppies for backing up partition tables.  So sadly, yes, I still use 
floppies.  I wouldn't trust a backup to one, though, and my free 
collection of worthless NT installation floppies generally just gathers 
dust  :-)
