On the theory that it might be the same chipset or something I took a look.

Thanks anyway, but it's a Ricoh Magio. What I have is not a PC-card floppy,
(Though as a completely side note, if you know how to find a driver for a
Maxell SuperDisk PCcard LS-120, please let me know. I asked the PCMCIA
hypernews forum about that one) I hear that this might also be selling in
Japan as a Thinkpad 235.

What I have is an honest-to-goodness parallel floppy; it has a standard
25 pin tail, and plugs into the parallel port on the back on my system.
