Compaq Presario SR1340UK and 5.25" floppy drive

Hi,

 

I know that a 5.25" floppy is well and truly out of date, but I still have a use for them. Can the Compaq Presario SR1340UK hardware and BIOS support an internal 5.25" floppy disk drive? I use linux as the OS and I know that will support the drives and diskettes.

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Martin

I am so embarrased not to have seen that. Seriously big thanks for taking the time and trouble to reply and sorry to have troubled you.

 

Kindest regards,
