Floppy drive: $6.
Buying enough boxes of floppies that you actually get six of them that
work long enough to install: $16.
In the long run, CDs are cheaper. Even before pulling out the bad
ones, I can go up to the Fred Meyer (or Fry's or Officemax or CompUSA)
and pick up a box of 25 floppies or $8, with maybe 5 good ones if I'm
*really* lucky, or get a 100 decent CDs for $12...
