I'm installing a standard Mitsumi floppy disk drive as my old one burned out. I feel I have a pretty good understanding of how to do it - but I want to make sure there aren't any major do's or don'ts or just a tip or two that anyone might have to offer. Better safe than sorry. Thanks.

Just watch how your cable and power connects to your old one.
The easiest way to ensure that you get it right the first time it to hold the new one beside the old one, making sure they are facing hte same direction. Then, pop the connector off the old one, and right onto the new one. Same goes with the power cable. The go ahead and remove the old on and put in the new one physically.

That should just about do it. Nothing needs to be done in the BIOS or anywhere else.
