Floppy nostalgia

I indulged in a bit of nostalgia on the weekend after my 10yr old son found a 5.25″ floppy disk in the back of my desk drawer and asked what it was. I headed down to shed and found an old 5.25″ disk drive, installed it in an old computer, and after a bit of fiddling around getting the ribbon connectors and BIOS setup correct, I was then able to boot into MSDOS 5.0 on the A: drive and relive those unforgettable grinding/clunking noises unique to old floppy disk drives.
