    your motherboad should have a seperate connector for your fdd. its a bit smaller then the ide cables on your other hardware have a look around and it will be there. just make sure that pin 1 is in the right place and connect it all up.

    I thought floppy's were finally extinct....
    oh well, open up your comp, look at the wires, plug in, and whammo! done...
    floppy's have to be one of the simplest things to install
    oh and if your cable doesn't say pin one anywhere on the connector, it is on the side with the red wire
