Brace yourself... I know this will come as shocking news to you but there's no easy way to say it...

Intel to kill floppy drives, serial ports next year
http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/54/22034.html

Intel is finally inciting the death of the floppy drive and is calling on PC manufacturers big and small to stop supplying the once-capacious 1.44MB removable drive in the latter half of 2002.

It might be a good idea for you to start transferring your files to ZIPs... Intel probably won't phase out that those drives until 2004...
