How to fix or disable the diskette on an A20P
I have an IBM ThinkPad A20P that has a bad diskette. I get an error
"02B0: Diskette drive A error" when I boot, and have to hit an ESC
to get past it. I don't really need a diskette drive all that much, but
I'd like to fix the drive or disable it so I don't have the error halt.
I have the Hardware Maintenance Manual that IBM provides so I
have the part numbers. However, a replacement TEAC drive is
listed at $242.00 on the IBM parts web site, and that's obscene.
Anyone know a better source, or how to disable the drive completely?
