I was reading the review of SiS645 motherboards at Tomshardware.com and noticed the following are listed as boot devices on one of the motherboards:
Floppy, LS120, SCSI, CD, HD 0-3, ZIP100, LAN, USB-FDD, USB-ZIP
Has anyone tried booting from a USB Zip or floppy drive? Can you boot from HD 1,2 or 3 without designating them as the Master harddrive on the channel??? (otherwise, what's the point?) Are LS-120 drives reliable? (They've been around for a while, but nobody I know has ever used them since Zip drives became ubiquitous in the business sector first). Are there any "tricks" to making the LS-120, Zip, and USB versions bootable?
I'm intrigued with ditching my conventional floppy and appreciate anyone's comments, suggestions, and/or experiences.
