    I have been cleaning house lately and found heaps of the old 5.5 inch floppy
    disks. This was like four or five computers ago and have all my old
    newspaper articles plus a bunch of my old college papers. Im wondering if
    it is possible to install one of the old 5.5 inch disk drives onto my p4 750
    mhz machine running win 2000?

    5.25" actually
    and yes you can install such a drive in your machine
    just be sure to enable it in the bios as drive B: and specify the capacity

    if you have old dos apps, they may not run under win2k and with the faster
    cpu
