I think I remember: By default, you have an empty floppy drive, and using
the console, you can load an image into that drive.

On the X11 VGA console, you can switch to the console usinf Ctrl-Alt-2
(back with Ctrl-Alt-1).



Thanks. That might explain the phantom floppy. So is there a way to remove/disable that option?
