Many thanks to wabbitcalif and ursuscal for being my on-forwarders.
I needed a 98SE driver to make it work on my system, and now it does. I plug it in and TING! instant removable drive appears in MyComputer.
I took the drive up to the Uni and impressed and out-geeked the IT Admins by plugging it into a USB port and getting an instant removable drive while they watched. I don't need to cart floppies around any more.
I know what the ITAdmins want for christmas.
