If you're referring to the Imation LS-120 drive, then yes, I have had success
with it on 4.7 and 4.8. It is supported by the afd(4) driver and I have been
able to read both the 120M format disks and regular 1.4M floppies.
The only thing I kind of think didn't work right was using fdformat to
low-level format floppies (this is not necessary for LS-120 disks as the
tracks are optically etched on them at the factory). But it has been quite a
while and my memory is a little fuzzy in that area.
The drive is still detected by 4.9, but I haven't actually used it since
upgrading to that. Unfortunately the drivers are rather hard to come by
