Is that an old motherboard?  I didn't think you could still get a motherboard with floppy header.

In my experience with 3.5" and 5.25" floppy disks, FreeDOS was better than Linux, and Linux was better than FreeBSD or NetBSD.

But I can't try that any more, since my current motherboards have no floppy headers.
