RE: [K12OSN] $169 computer



What I plan to do, since we don;t allow students to use floppies here 
anyway is to slide the FDD back into the case and put the blanker back in.  
This way it will boot from the floppy (until it wears out) and they can't 
bother it or remove it or eat it or whatever it is they will do with a 
floppy.
