THE SYSTEM DRIVES

This chapter contains simple operating instructions about the drives
that may be currently fitted in your computer.
The floppy disk drive is usually configured in the system BIOS as
drive A:, with a capacity of 1.44 Mbytes.
Floppy disks should be kept away from bright sunlight, dust,
moisture and any strong magnetic fields, e.g. do not place them on
the monitor, printer, or near a telephone. It is common to store them
in a lockable "disk-box", away from the computer itself. Avoid
opening the metal window on the disk as this exposes the magnetic
surface to contamination which could damage the data or cause the
disk to become useless.
1. First test the eject button to ensure there are no disks in the
drive.
2. Insert the disk with the metal window first, with the label side
uppermost into the drive. This will push open the drive door.
